NCCS At a glance


North Carroll Community School is an independent, coeducational, nonsectarian school serving students in grades Kindergarten through Eight. We are located in northern Carroll County on a beautiful 12 acre campus featuring a full size soccer field, natural playscape, STEM and Makerspace rooms, and a gorgeous, open central atrium.  Our students come from Carroll, Baltimore, and Frederick counties in Maryland, as well as several municipalities in Pennsylvania.


Started by Diane Havighurst and Scot Lynn, two former public school teachers, NCCS is the perfect mix of traditional and progressive education.
