Celebrate Community at Northwood
The PEAKS program began in 2018-19 with the goal of encouraging school spirit and strengthening Northwood's community. At registration of their first year, students are assigned to one of four PEAK teams and stay with that team throughout their Northwood career. To celebrate Northwood's Adirondack home, PEAK teams are named for some of the area's high points: Skylight, Wolfjaw, Gothics, and Big Slide. Teams are issued a freshly designed PEAK team t-shirt each year at registration. These PEAK teams compete throughout the year for points in various campus activities. Competitions include winter carnival and various other PEAK events throughout the year. At the end of the year the PEAK group that has performed best in the cumulative competitions earns a prize.
