Housing and Homes

Our students stay in community homes and dorm homes where they become part of the family and community.  Newcomb provides international and residential coordinators that check on the students in home and at school on a regular basis.  Our host families are all well known to the school district and background checks are completed on every family member.  Most of our students come back for visits to their home away from home.  We work hard to find that "forever" home for our international students.


Newcomb has small classes with highly qualified teachers to provide all the support needed for students to excel.  Seniors who are are diligent students may be able to graduate from a New York State public high school.  We also have a unique dual enrollment with 2 colleges which the students have the opportunity to earn up to 25 college credits while still in high school.

Newcomb Central School also has a commitment to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). Students work collaboratively in groups to facilitate peer teaching.  Student work group provides opportunities for a rich curriculum and cross curricular ties.  

Friday afternoons are an opportunity for the students to participate in a variety of clubs such as Stock Market, Outdoor Club, Photography, Archery and many more!

Most of our international and residential students also enjoy participating in sports, chorus, band, art and drama.  There's something for everyone!!
