- Northfield Mount Hermon (NMH) is an independent coeducational boarding and day school for 650 students in grades 912 and a postgraduate year. NMH`s mission is to provide an exceptional, well-grounded education for the "head, heart, and hand" of each student.
- Located in western Massachusetts on the Connecticut River, NMH balances academic excellence and a challenging, innovative college-preparatory curriculum with extensive opportunities in international studies, athletics, the arts, and service work. Supported and guided by expert faculty and staff, students are encouraged to pursue their passions and discover new ones, and to make their own unique contribution to the NMH community.
- NMH`s mission is to encourage students to think critically, act with humanity, and discover within themselves a sense of purpose. To that end, our faculty devote an extraordinary amount of time and energy to fostering students` accomplishment and success, both in and out of the classroom.
- Our distinctive "College Model Academic Program" (CMAP) is centered around class periods that are longer than a typical high school class (80 minutes). This allows students to explore subjects in greater depth and spend more time with their teachers. Students take three major courses each semester - six per year, which is one more than at schools that have traditional schedules. The average class size is 11 students, and NMH`s overall studentteacher ratio is 6 to 1.
- NMH combines academic demands with a commitment to life balance. We focus on the whole student, and aim to be flexible in meeting individual needs while also integrating students into a diverse, busy community. Our "Partnership of 12" initiative is a network of adults (at least a dozen every semester) who support each student every day, including teachers, coaches, dorm staff, and work supervisors.
- Students choose from dozens of sports teams, performing arts ensembles, and affinity groups and clubs. They have the opportunity to study abroad on academic trips led by NMH faculty, volunteer for outreach and service activities, or help on the school`s working farm. Each student contributes to the community by holding down a four-hour weekly job in the school`s work program. Jobs include giving tours for prospective students, doing chores on the farm, or washing dishes in the dining hall, doing administrative tasks in one of the school`s many offices, and a variety of other responsibilities.
- NMH has made serious commitments to multiculturalism throughout its 136-year history. Currently, 25 percent of the student body is international, and the school focuses extensively on racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, religious, and gender diversity in extracurricular workshops and events throughout the year.
- NMH is located two hours west of Boston; New York City is less than four hours south. The rural location is balanced with facilities such as a recently built $34 million arts center. Construction on a new science, math, and technology facility will begin this fall.
- NMH has no preconceived notion of who students ought to be, but great expectations of what they can be. At NMH, students are academically challenged, socially engaged, and constantly surprised by both themselves and the world.
