Holderness Fund Deadline Extended to July 5th at midnight!  Give Now!


In the Holderness classroom every student is in the front row. With an average class size of 12, and with levels ranging from introductory to Advanced Placement, our curriculum is rich with choices. Innovation, collaboration, and flexibility are the prerequisites; passion and accomplishment are the results. Here, again, our community life plays a fundamental role. Our students are known, nurtured, and encouraged. They feel safe enough to take the intellectual risks they need to grow.
