Holderness School is an independent boarding and day school for grades 9–12 offering a rigorous college preparatory education and curriculum in a vibrant and supportive community.
Its motto—pro deo et genere humano—is at the heart of its community. Translated as “For God and Humankind,” this phrase guides the school’s focus on cultivating the minds, bodies, and spiritual lives of its students as a foundation for academic excellence.
Young people who attend Holderness participate in three sports a year including rock climbing and mountain biking, as well as traditional school sports like football, lacrosse, and soccer. Half of the student body is comprised of alpine, Nordic and freeski snow sports athletes—many are ranked at the national or international level. The school is located minutes from three of the best ski mountains in the East, has a lighted running and Nordic trail network and an outdoor ice rink.
Holderness School is a member of the National Association of Episcopal Schools and its guiding principles are steeped in a Christian tradition of inclusion and open inquiry. Students and faculty attend chapel twice a week and often collaborate on the service content and style.
The combination of the school’s focus on community and character and its joyful outdoor spirit is what makes it distinctive. Holderness offers a first class preparatory education, a first class snow sports program, and nurtures graduates who are curious, resilient, and prepared for a happy and successful life.
