Visit NMH

We welcome you to enjoy a visit to NMH.

The school’s campus encompasses 1,100 scenic acres on the wooded banks of the Connecticut River and is near the borders of Vermont and New Hampshire. Brattleboro, Vt., is 13 miles north of NMH, and Greenfield, Mass., is 10 miles to the south.

The culturally rich five-college region of Northampton and Amherst is a 40-minute drive south. New York City is 3½ hours south via I-91 and I-95; Boston lies 2 hours east on Route 2 or the Massachusetts Turnpike. Bradley International Airport, which serves Hartford and Springfield, is 1½ hours south on I-91.

NMH hosts academic sessions, conferences, and athletic camps in the summer, and is home to a classic New England farm, cultural events and student performances, and a bookstore that features NMH gifts and apparel.

On these pages you'll find information about job opportunities at NMH, maps and directions, area dining and lodging, and transportation services to and from regional airports.

Visitors interested in admission opportunities at NMH should follow signs to Bolger House, where you'll find stunning views of the Connecticut River Valley and admission officers waiting to show off our campus and introduce you to our academic program. Follow the signs from Route 10 into the central part of the campus; Bolger House sits across from Memorial Chapel.

This past summer, I increased my awareness of my identity by reconnecting with my native country, Ethiopia.


“I don’t think I would be anywhere near the person I am today if it wasn’t for NMH. It’s enlightened me about so many different things, and I’ve met people from everywhere you can imagine.”


In my old school, I never saw myself as someone who could be a Division I player one day. Now I can.


"One of my biggest influences has been my math teacher. He built this love of math in me—specifically, the idea that math can be used to interpret the world." 


"The fact that everything is here at my fingertips has really helped me grow."


"Almost all of our classes are conversation-based, which means that you're totally engaged in classroom discussion."


"I enjoy helping my friends, and it's given me a new respect for teachers. I may even go into teaching myself one day."


"In VOTES, I learned how to prepare and present—skills I drew on in Washington."


 "This year, I'm field hockey captain. I enjoy giving advice and support."


“I like that you can start completely new things. You can reinvent yourself.”


Dance has taken this creative learner on an artistic journey.

 “My teachers told me to use my own voice, and they pushed me to think about what I really believed in.”


"The curriculum here is hard, but it’s the right amount of hard."


“The academics are extremely rigorous, but because of the way teachers present things, it’s like, ‘I have school today!’”


“The learning you can do in a study-abroad program can outweigh anything else you can do even at a school like this.” 


“NMH encouraged me to explore new things, try everything, and see what’s best for me.”


“You’ll always find a place here as long as you just be yourself.”


“There is a community here that cares about you.”
