Extracurricular & Cocurricular Programs

The Northfield Mount Hermon education extends beyond the classroom.

Supporting the classroom experience is a robust cocurricular program that offers students the opportunity to put their learning into action. Cocurricular participation — playing soccer, acting in the musical, writing for the student newspaper, debating policy, creating a space balloon, tutoring at the local public school — brings to life the NMH mission to “act with humanity and purpose.”

My philosophy is: Fail early, so you can eventually succeed.

Gretel Schatz, Director of the Dance program, instructs a dance student.

I want dance students to engage their own memory and intellect.
