  • Insurance

    Holderness School requires that every student be covered by a comprehensive injury and sickness plan. Medical insurance issued from a country outside of the United States may not provide complete coverage in the United States. In order to help meet your healthcare coverage needs, Holderness offers a comprehensive plan through United Health Group. For more information, please click on the following pdf:

    You will have the option to complete enrollment and other important documentation via Holderness forms & waivers, once you have enrolled as a student.
  • Orientation

    All international students attend international student orientation to assist with the transition to life at Holderness. This program takes place on campus September 3-5. During this time, international students will have a chance to recuperate from jet-lag, learn their surroundings, meet teachers and student leaders, purchase school and dorm supplies, and get comfortable with campus life.
  • Travel

    With the support of the International Student Coordinator, Holderness helps students coordinate travel to and from campus around vacation periods, including airport pick-up or drop off to Boston’s Logan Airport or Manchester New Hampshire Airport. Students also receive help organizing international student travel documentation.
  • Vacation

    International students may choose to stay on campus for the extended October and February Parent's Weekend. Students who stay on campus participate in activities and receive supervision. All students leave campus for our Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. During this time, students typically travel home or homestay with a friend.
  • Academic Support

    Holderness does not offer ESL but does require a weekly 1 to 1 class with our ESOL teacher for students whose first language is not English. These classes offer support in all areas of student life.
