Postgraduate Program

Enhance your academic, athletic, and creative achievements during a gap year between high school and college. 

A postgraduate year — a break between completing high school and beginning college — gives you additional time to build you skills and grow and helps make you more competitive in the college admission process

A postgraduate year is a great option if you’ve graduated from high school but still have goals you’d like to achieve. You might be a serious athlete who wants to compete at a high level in college. Maybe you’re an international student interested in perfecting your English to attend an American college. Perhaps you were distracted for the first part of high school and need one more year to reach your potential. Or you’re not quite ready to enter college but don’t want to waste time or be bored. 

Our postgraduate program is thoughtfully designed. You’ll have the support of a dedicated postgraduate advisor and academic dean who will help you meet your academic, athletic, and creative goals while taking advantage of NMH’s exceptional resources and opportunities. 

You’ll also benefit from our personalized approach to college counseling. You’ll immediately start to work with your college counselor on the intricacies of the application process and the journey to find a college that best suits you.

NMH offers postgraduates an intentional, empowering support system to help you integrate smoothly into the senior class. You’ll be part of an energetic and intellectually engaged community with a wide range of academic, cocurricular, and leadership opportunities. You’ll leave NMH more than ready for college, having honed your talents and developed friendships to last a lifetime.
