D.L. Moody Society

portrait of DLMoodyThe D.L. Moody Society is a group of alumni, parents, and friends who give generously to Northfield Mount Hermon each year. The school depends on Moody Society donors, whose contributions in support of the NMH Fund, capital projects, and the endowment have a huge impact on the school and its students, faculty, and staff.

Named in honor of the school's founder, the Moody Society serves as a cornerstone of financial support for NMH. Its members help sustain Moody's original vision of offering an education for the whole student: head, heart, and hand.

To show appreciation for this commitment to NMH's principles and traditions, the school invites Moody Society members to exclusive gatherings with the head of school and recognizes their generosity at events.

This past summer, I increased my awareness of my identity by reconnecting with my native country, Ethiopia.


“I don’t think I would be anywhere near the person I am today if it wasn’t for NMH. It’s enlightened me about so many different things, and I’ve met people from everywhere you can imagine.”


In my old school, I never saw myself as someone who could be a Division I player one day. Now I can.


"One of my biggest influences has been my math teacher. He built this love of math in me—specifically, the idea that math can be used to interpret the world." 


"The fact that everything is here at my fingertips has really helped me grow."


"Almost all of our classes are conversation-based, which means that you're totally engaged in classroom discussion."


"I enjoy helping my friends, and it's given me a new respect for teachers. I may even go into teaching myself one day."


"In VOTES, I learned how to prepare and present—skills I drew on in Washington."


 "This year, I'm field hockey captain. I enjoy giving advice and support."


“I like that you can start completely new things. You can reinvent yourself.”


Dance has taken this creative learner on an artistic journey.

 “My teachers told me to use my own voice, and they pushed me to think about what I really believed in.”


"The curriculum here is hard, but it’s the right amount of hard."


“The academics are extremely rigorous, but because of the way teachers present things, it’s like, ‘I have school today!’”


“The learning you can do in a study-abroad program can outweigh anything else you can do even at a school like this.” 


“NMH encouraged me to explore new things, try everything, and see what’s best for me.”


“You’ll always find a place here as long as you just be yourself.”


“There is a community here that cares about you.”
