School House in the Spring


Make an immediate impact.

Tuition only covers 75% of the yearly costs to run the school; summer programming covers 5%, while philanthropy accounts for the remaining 20% of the operating budget. Careful stewardship of tuition income, endowment revenue, and annual gifts are the means by which we care for our buildings, faculty and staff, and provide an exceptional education to each one of our students. Philanthropy is an especially resonant word for Holderness School because our mission and most deeply-held value is Pro Deo et Genere Humano, meaning for God and Humankind.
