NMH offers one of the broadest athletics programs among secondary schools in the country—and the really good news is that our unique scheduling system (College Model Academic Program [CMAP]) allows students to participate in sports at no sacrifice to their studies. This is all consistent with the NMH philosophy of a purposeful education, providing opportunities for students to discover and cultivate the passion that lies within them. Athletics also help to fulfill another critical element of the NMH philosophy: Citizenship. Through athletics, our students learn valuable lessons about sportsmanship, leadership, and general good behavior that they can apply to all other areas of life.
As a student-athlete, you can compete in 21 interscholastic sports on more than 60 teams that include varsity, junior varsity, and junior levels. Many teams play in the most competitive leagues in New England, so you’ll be asked to dig deeper and reach for your best, all the while working with your classmates as a team. Our experienced coaches push you and support you at the same time. At NMH, no matter which sport you pursue, you’ll go further than you ever imagined possible.
Our two new turf fields and several new outdoor tennis courts (adding up to 12 outdoor courts altogether) attest to our dedication to providing the tools and resources that NMH teams need to succeed. Athletes work out in a newly remodeled fitness center, tear up our eight-lane all-weather track, and swim laps in our indoor six-lane pool. You’ll also find a nine-hole golf course; a boathouse on the Connecticut River; two full gymnasiums; baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse, and softball fields; and an ice rink.
In addition to interscholastic teams, you can sign up for intramural athletics (soccer, basketball, volleyball, and softball) and take part in our extensive outdoor program, where the miles of trails on campus and at nearby mountains and lakes extend your classroom. Dance classes also help you meet physical education/athletics requirements. If you’re ready for a physical and mental challenge, NMH has a sport for you.
