Discover Holderness

Welcome to the Holderness School Admission Office!

We are proud to represent Holderness School and grateful for every opportunity to meet prospective students. Here on our website you will find plenty of information not only about our school and its programs, but also about how to visit, apply for admission, and apply for financial aid. We hope you’ll spend a bit of time looking at our academic, athletic, and residential programs online. Then, we hope you will schedule a visit. Touring our campus and meeting our students and faculty are by far the best ways to get to know Holderness. See you soon!
