Responsibility. Respect. Integrity. Compassion. Courage.
Our student handbook explains how these core values shape the Northwood community.
Our CommunityAt Northwood, we hold each other accountable. We recognize every individual’s worth. We observe a shared moral code. We extend a helping hand to those in need. We approach challenges with confidence. These values define our school. Anchored by our Lake Placid campus, Northwood’s students, faculty, staff, family, and friends form a community that extends across many borders and cultures. We all work together toward a common goal; to support students in their academic pursuits, individual self-expression, and development of practical skills. Our student handbook explains how our shared values and ethics are expressed in daily life, academics, and behavior. This creates a common standard that is upheld by all members of the Northwood community.
Your GuideMore than just a list of rules, our student handbook also helps students feel at home as they transition to campus life. It provides a detailed explanation on the advisor selection process, and what to expect with regards to cell phones, motor vehicles, and the library. Questions about academic programs, athletic options, and co-curricular requirements? Many of those questions are answered here, too. Northwood’s student handbook helps students, parents, and staff understand how our community operates.
