Every spring, our seniors gather at the Outdoor Chapel for the Stones Chapel. At this service, seniors are invited to place a decorated stone along a rock wall, slowly building the wall and representing the enduring legacy of Holderness graduates.
When seniors can finally return to campus, they will eventually become the first class to add rocks from their various places, enriching the wall with a reflection of our vast geographic diversity. In this year's Virtual Stones Chapel, retiring faculty member Doug Kendall was invited to lead a different kind of service and share bits of wisdom gleaned from a 37-year career at Holderness School.
While the upcoming school year’s cohort of new students won’t arrive at Holderness School until later this summer, they’re already connecting with current students and faculty through the school’s revamped Big Sibling Program - and the newly-created Summer Advisor Program.
