Special Programs at Holderness School
Greg Kwasnik

At Holderness School, students spent first half of March on Special Programs - a transformative 11-day period of growth, service, and adventure. It's a time when students leave the classroom and learn by doing. 

Here’s what our students did during Special Programs:

9th Grade

9th grade students spent their time on Project Outreach, a service learning-based program that took them to dozens of communities across New Hampshire. They prepared meals at the New Hampshire Food Bank, volunteered for the Special Olympics, and gave their time to scores of other local organizations.

10th Grade

10th graders were engrossed in Artward Bound, where they participated in workshops with visiting musicians, dancers, and visual artists. Along the way, they discovered the role art plays in exploring their identities and understanding their place in the world.

11th Grade

11th graders went on Out Back, an 11-day backpacking adventure in the White Mountains.  It’s a life-changing experience for many students, who learned valuable skills and gained confidence in themselves as they overcame new challenges.

12th Grade

12th graders left campus to spend a week shadowing an expert in their chosen Senior Capstone project. This March Experience, as it’s known at Holderness, provides invaluable real-world experience that students use to inform their yearlong Capstone projects.
