All current parents are members of the HSPA, and are encouraged to get involved in different activities to meet other parents and stay connected to the school. During the school year, the HSPA holds fundraisers which support the efforts of the Parents Association as well as the Holderness Fund.

  • Join the Network and be a Mentor

    Help a Senior Thesis Student
    In 2014, Senior Thesis became a full-participation event for all Holderness seniors. Since that time our network of parents and alumni have played a pivotal role in the success of Senior Thesis by providing experiential learning opportunities in their respective industries. We hope you’ll consider offering spring break, summer, and other short-term internship or shadowing opportunities that will help seniors further their studies. Please contact Sarah Barton if you would like more information.

    Career Mentors
    Our young graduates are entering the workplace, and we want to help them connect with helpful and wise Holderness mentors. Consider meeting with an alumnus or alumna in your area and sharing your knowledge and experience not only in your field of expertise, but in life!
