Lifelong Learners and Active Global Citizens

New Hampton School is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory school for boarding and day students, grades 9 through 12, and postgraduate. Nestled in the foothills of New Hampshire's White Mountains and the heart of the beautiful Lakes Region, yet just 90 minutes from Boston, Massachusetts, the 350-acre campus features six contemporary classroom buildings. On-campus housing includes 13 dormitories, varying in size, each with resident dorm parents/family and complementary dorm life programming activities throughout the year.

Sharing the whole world

Our school's mission is to cultivate lifelong learners who will serve as active global citizens. Core values of respect and responsibility provide an essential foundation, while our inclusive community immerses students in diverse cultures, travel opportunities and a worldwide network of alumni, families, and friends. By allowing classroom conversations to represent more points of view, expertise from outside sources, and intellectual links to coursework, we introduce students to a full range of insights. Ours is a conscious curriculum built on an interconnected understanding of the world.

The student body includes representation from 28 states and 30 different countries. Twenty-five percent of students are international. New Hampton routinely sends students to top colleges and universities, including Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dartmouth College, University of Michigan, Brown University, University of Wisconsin, Madison, UCLA, and the University of Chicago.

Empowering Technology

New Hampton School is considered a leader in technology integration and is recognized by Apple for continuous innovation in learning, teaching, and the school environment. Students benefit from a 1:1 iPad Program, used to individualize the learning process and expand ideas, and are well-versed in the promise of technology in their futures.

Enlivened Learning

Our school is proud of its programmatic variety, spirited athletics, robust art offerings, including Animation by the Walt Disney Family Museum, a new Entrepreneurial Studies curriculum, student leadership opportunities, clubs, and activities. International Baccalaureate classes begin in eleventh grade and can be taken as part of the full Diploma Programme or as certificate courses. The IB philosophy permeates the curriculum and prepares ninth and tenth graders to embrace its challenges. Equally prominent is the School's commitment to delivering durable skills using relevant content, emphasizing experiential education and career partnerships. The average class size is 11, and the academic rigor is well-balanced with project-based learning modules and dynamic, supportive educators. Students preparing to meet the demands of the IB Diploma Programme may take advantage of our Academic Support Program tutorials or International Support classes to better understand their learning styles and build confidence.

Weekend activities on and off campus include dances, dinner trips, shopping, hikes, concerts, day trips to Boston, and student-designed outings.
