Summer Session | Virtual Learning Program

June 29–July 31 |  for students entering Grades 9–12

Make the most of online learning this summer with NMH Summer Session’s virtual learning program. 

For more than 100 years, NMH has offered rigorous academics, innovative teaching, and individualized attention. It’s all offered online this summer through a five-week virtual learning plan with the same personalized touch, close connection with NMH teachers, small class sizes, and excellent support from academic coaches and college counselors that families expect. 
For some students, summer online learning at NMH is a chance to experience a challenging academic subject, possibly for the first time. For others, it’s a chance to build on their existing foundation and get a jump on college preparation. Courses marked with an asterisk (see 2020 Courses below) cover a full year's work. 

In addition to brief weekly progress reports emailed to parents, a final and more detailed report, along with a full course description, will be emailed to parents at the conclusion of the program. For students who do not currently attend Northfield Mount Hermon during the academic year, final reports and course descriptions can also be sent to their schools; it is up to those institutions to determine granting of credit.
Online Summer Session students benefit from the “head, heart, and hand” approach to teaching and learning at NMH in a virtual setting. Get ahead, fill in gaps, repair academic disruptions, further academic skills and knowledge, and excel for the upcoming school year.
