Visit

Come see why this is such an incredible place to live and learn.

Use your mouse (or finger if you are on a phone) to click and drag to move the frame around and explore.

Actually being on a campus can be the turning point in your school search. You walk among the buildings, hear the sounds of the school day, and see students being themselves. Most important, you talk to people. How do they make you feel? Is what they have to say important to you? What's your gut feeling about the culture of the place?

Our job at NMH is to make your time with us easy to navigate and filled with valuable information and insights. No matter what, you'll learn something during your visit.

We've designed three opportunities to help you start your exploration. We can tweak your visit to suit your particular interests and to make your experience positive and educational.

You can start with NMH. We can help you ease into your school search and feel comfortable and prepared visiting other schools. Or consider ending your search with us — to see why we're so well-known among boarding schools as a wonderful place to visit.

*Please note that we offer some limited times to interview during our Class Visit Days and Open House events. To schedule an interview, please contact the admission office at 413-498-3227.
