Experience the Holderness Difference
At Holderness, it’s not about the grade, or how well you perform on a test; it is about developing a lifelong passion for learning. Imagine yourself in classes with no more than 16 students and in which your teachers encourage your questions and participation. The Harkness Method is often utilized in English and history classrooms, and weekly labs are performed in the sciences. Additionally, the lakes and mountains of New Hampshire provide further academic experiences. From biology field trips on Squam Lake for water quality testing to visits to the Human Performance Lab at Plymouth State University, the opportunities to experience real-life applications of classroom lessons are endless. Imagine a school in which your intellectual curiosity and perseverance are rewarded and where your teachers are there not just to help you learn but to help you develop passions and interests that will last a lifetime. That’s the Holderness difference.
