Summary: Students at NCS live with a roommate in small houses of 8 to 12 children. A team of faculty houseparents works carefully to support and supervise each child. Sharing living spaces and daily routines of morning wake-up, evening study hall, and bedtime creates strong relationships among the children and adults in the house. The house becomes the place for much of each student's learning and growth. Homenights every Wednesday - when each house prepares and eats dinner together and enjoys special activities - help students feel a sense of family and a "home away from home"
