Description

Northfield Mount Hermon is a co-educational, secular boarding day school serving 630 students in grades 9 through 12, plus a postgraduate year. We are located on a serene, wooded 1,320-acre campus in Massachusetts’ Connecticut River Valley.

At NMH, students learn with passion, act with humanity, and lead with intention, as they find purpose in their potential. We provide an advanced educational experience that supports students as they discover and follow their passions in an inclusive, global community. Students come from 60 countries, and 33% of domestic students are students of color.

NMH’s distinctive College-Model Academic Program (CMAP) allows students to explore subjects in greater depth and develop deeper relationships with their teachers. NMH’s average class size is 13 students, and our student–teacher ratio is 6 to 1. The NMH Advanced Program curriculum goes beyond typical AP courses, allowing students to take on college-level work and apply their learning using real-world skills and project-based assessments.

NMH balances a challenging, innovative college-preparatory curriculum with extensive opportunities in international studies, athletics, the arts, and service. It’s an academic culture that prioritizes participatory, experiential learning; thoughtful exploration; and multi-disciplinary connections.

Our curriculum-based campus life program is an immersive experience that connects learning objectives across all aspects of academic and residential life. Every member of our community is expected to engage across differing identities, recognize and challenge biases, and to develop world views in a spirit of dialogue, not division.

Each NMH student is surrounded by a network of compassionate adult mentors — advisors, teachers, coaches, and residential staff — who guide them and help them reach sky-high aspirations. This program, which we call Connection 360, connects residential life and advising systems to support each student’s growth.
