Northmount School is pleased to offer both Regular and Cogito programming. Our mainstream program is available for students living in the Northmount and Schonsee communities.  

The Cogito alternative program is currently provided for students in Kindergarten to grade six through application only. 


Message from the Principal

At Northmount, we are proud of the high quality opportunities we provide to encourage the development of exceptional academic and social-emotional competencies. Our actions are founded in the belief in the worth and potential of each child we serve.

Our strong sense of school community empowers children and staff to become active community and global citizens. We create opportunities for our students to make choices that make the world a better place.

We offer both Mainstream and Cogito programming for grades Kindergarten through six.  We work intentionally to build and maintain a safe and cohesive culture where each child belongs and is actively engaged in the learning process.

Our mission statement is a testament to the work we do everyday and informs the decisions we make. At Northmount, we:

  • all belong and see ourselves reflected in our school.
  • communicate to create a positive, collaborative, and welcoming environment.
  • challenge and support ourselves and each other to set and work towards our goals.
  • demonstrate excitement, pride, and confidence in our daily work and acknowledge our willingness to take risks. 

We look forward to an enriching school year.

With appreciation,

Theresa Purificati
