Academic Policies

Graduation from Northfield Mount Hermon involves fulfilling both academic and nonacademic requirements.

Effective planning of an academic program necessitates an understanding of all requirements, including the school’s credit system. To this end, students work closely with their advisors on long-range planning and specific course selection.

The Northfield Mount Hermon school year is divided into two semesters. NMH students must be in residence throughout their career at the school; exceptions will be made for students participating in programs sponsored or approved by the school. Seniors are required to be enrolled in six credits for the entire school year, even though they may have fulfilled subject graduation requirements before the spring semester.
