As the birthplace of American suburbia, Nassau County claims a rich history and some of the wealthiest communities in the nation.
Residents of Nassau County on Long Island enjoy an exceptional quality of life that includes state-of-the-art services in close proximity to the nation's cultural center of New York City. Highly respected and award-winning public and private schools serve students from preschool through 12th grade with technologically advanced classrooms, innovative programs, and a wealth of opportunities for extra-curricular activities.
In spite of its relatively modest area in square miles, Nassau County is brimming over with educational resources. Adelphia University in Garden City, Briarcliffe College in Bethpage, Dowling College in Oakdale, Hofstra University in Hempstead, Long Island University in Brookville, Molloy College in Rockville Centre, and New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury provide a private college education in a wide range of disciplines. More specialized programs are also available at the New York College for Wholistic Health, Education & Research and the United States Merchant Marine Academy. The Webb Institute in Glen Cove is another unique, top-ranked undergraduate institution that focuses on one discipline: Naval architecture and marine engineering. The only public four-year arts, science, and business campus in the county is SUNY College at Old Westbury. However, Nassau Community College in Garden City ensures an affordable start on a four-year degree as well as career and vocational programs and associate's degrees.
Healthcare is equally accessible and advanced throughout the county, anchored by hospitals and medical centers with a history of exemplary patient care and impressive contributions to the worldwide medical community.
