Nicholas J. Mann, son of Brian Mann and Susan Waters from Saranac Lake, is attending The Clarkson School.
The Clarkson School is Clarkson University's early college entrance program, which provides exceptional high school age students with a full academic year of residency-based interdisciplinary education, typically before they would have graduated high school.
Clarkson School students have the best of both worlds access to all the resources and amenities of a nationally ranked university, with separate residential facilities, and a faculty and staff dedicated to meeting their unique individual and collective needs.

Students are considered first-year undergraduates, taking a full course load alongside other Clarkson University freshmen. Since Clarkson School students enter Clarkson University as fully matriculated first-year students, they have access to all University facilities, participate in clubs/organizations, can join varsity sports teams, and earn up to 32 college credits.
At the same time, Clarkson School students are immersed in a supportive residential environment with specialized programs and activities that bridge the gap between high school and college.
Students who finish the academic year in good standing may automatically continue as sophomores at Clarkson, or move onto other top colleges and universities around the country, taking the college credits earned for evaluation.
