Information for Parents

For 135 years Holderness has been upholding our values of community, character, scholarship, balance and involvement.  The evidence is everywhere in our students' lives - from Chapel to Job Program to Study Hall to a rousing game of Foursquare on a Saturday night - the Holderness experience is extraordinary. We hope this page will help spark conversations and keep you connected to your children during the weeks and months ahead.
