That’s why, at Northfield Mount Hermon, we focus as much on character as we do on intellectual development. It’s why we’re committed to creating the kind of diverse and dynamic community that reflects the real world. And it’s why we provide educational experiences that are nothing short of life changing.
Classes are rooted in our College Model Academic Program, which extends the time for intellectual discovery and deepens every student’s experience. The longer (80-minute) classes mean a deeper dive into every subject. Even though students take “only” three courses a semester, they take six core-academic courses a year instead of the typical five.
Outside of class? You’ll find our students digging into 67-plus sports teams, some 25 performing-arts ensembles, and loads of student-led clubs and organizations. All students also contribute to the day-to-day running of the school through their “workjobs,” which meet four hours a week, and over 200 students will engage in ongoing community service.
No one at NMH goes it alone. Our Partnership of 12 program provides every student with a support network of adults who make sure students have what they need to succeed. Whether it’s in the dorm, in class, on the field, or on the job, there’s always someone students can connect with and count on.
Among our 27,000 living alumni, we claim Grammy, Oscar, and Pulitzer Prize winners; U.S. ambassadors and White House senior advisors; and hundreds of notable athletes, educators, humanitarians, and business leaders. But we’re most proud of how well prepared our graduates are to do good things in the world. They respect themselves and others. They know the value of hard work. And they know exactly what they have to contribute.
Because this isn’t a cookie-cutter education; it’s about your path — and creating the kinds of experiences that will help you become the best thinker, student, community member, and citizen of the world that you can be.
