"We know that the students who come to us from NCCS will be superbly prepared academically, active learners in the classroom, and eager and able to serve our mission of serving as ‘partners’ in our community."Ann R. Miller, Director of Enrollment and Financial Aid, Greens Farms Academy 

“NCCS students who enroll at Choate come well prepared in all realms – academically, athletically and artistically – and are thus wonderfully engaged community members. At the heart of it all is a true love of learning and curiosity that makes them exceptionally proactive and engaged both inside and outside of the classroom.”—Jeffrey Beaton, Senior Associate Director of Admission, Choate Rosemary Hall
