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, the 350-acre campus features six classroom buildings, including the recently opened Pilalas Center for Math and Science and the newly restored Meservey Hall, home to the History Department, Academic Support Program, and the Writing Center. There are 13 dormitories, varying in size, each with resident dorm parents/family.

The school, which has a mission to cultivate lifelong learners who will serve as active global citizens, is an inclusive community of students who are experiencing, exploring and appreciating world cultures, traditions, histories, languages, and religions.

The 2017-18 student body includes representation from 28 states and 31 different countries. Twenty-five percent of New Hampton students are international. New Hampton routinely sends its students to top colleges and universities. Students in the last three years have attended schools 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, features a 1:1 iPad Program, and is recognized as an Apple Distinguished School. The school strives to innovatively prepare students for 21st century leadership. The school's two core values - respect and responsibility - ground the community.

The school boasts a strong athletic program and offers 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: the Foundations of Learning (FOL) showcases the paramount tools and content a 21st-century learner needs most. The average class size is 11, and the breadth of academic offerings ranges from university rigor to support, from the IB Diploma Programme, Advanced Placement, honors courses, and independent study to tutorials and International Support classes that accommodate individual methods and pace of learning.

There are plenty of fun weekend activities including dances, dinner trips, shopping, hikes, concerts, and day trips to Boston. The school's dining hall has been recognized for its outstanding cuisine.
