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 in the heart of the beautiful Lakes Region, yet just 90 minutes from Boston, Massachusetts, the 350-acre campus features six contemporary classroom buildings, including the state-of-the art Pilalas Center for Math and Science and the newly restored Meservey Hall. There are 13 dormitories, varying in size, each with resident dorm parents/family and exceptional athletics and arts facilities.

Our school, which has a mission to cultivate lifelong learners who will serve as active global citizens, is an inclusive community of students who develop an appreciation for difference, openness to others, and a unique world view.

The student body includes representation from 28 states and 30 different countries. Twenty-five percent of New Hampton students are international. New Hampton routinely sends its students to top colleges and universities including the University of Michigan, Princeton University, Cornell University, Williams College, Dartmouth College, UCLA, and University of Chicago.

New Hampton School is considered a leader in technology integration, featuring a 1:1 iPad Program, and has been an Apple Distinguished School since 2012. Exceptional use of technology by teachers and students prepares graduates for today's world. At the same time, the school’s two core values - respect and responsibility - ground the community.

Our school is proud of a strong athletic program and a variety of arts offerings. International Baccalaureate classes begin in the eleventh grade and can be taken as part of the full Diploma Programme or as certificate courses. The IB philosophy pervades the curriculum, and ninth and tenth graders are prepared to embrace its challenges. Equally prominent is the school's commitment to the delivery of durable skills using relevant content with emphasis on experiential education, habits of mind and career internships and partnerships. The average class size is 11, and the breadth of academic offerings ranges from university rigor to support, from the IB Diploma Programme, honors courses, and independent study to tutorials and International Support classes that accommodate individual methods and pace of learning.

Weekend activities on and off campus include dances, dinner trips, shopping, hikes, concerts, and day trips to Boston. The school's dining hall has been recognized for its outstanding cuisine.
