True Story: Dara ’11
Involved in the performing arts since the age of three, Dara was thrilled to be able to further her passion for the stage at New Hampton. Getting to play the role of Emily in “Our Town” was definitely a highlight. But that’s not the only reason she chose to leave her old school after her sophomore year. Says Dara, “I was attracted to New Hampton School because of its intimacy and the environment it provided.” Coming from a school with big classes, Dara found New Hampton to be the kind of place where she could quickly make friends and “build genuine relationships with fellow students and teachers.”
A dancer, Dara also joined the soccer team and she says, “In my first year I learned a lot about myself in and out of the classroom. I was able to try new things and grow with the help of the New Hampton community.”
Dara won the English Department Award at the end of her senior year and matriculated to Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania where she continues to pursue her passion for literature and dance. She departed New Hampton treasuring the relationships she developed with her teachers and the opportunity to live in a community that valued each member and their story. Says Dara, "I don’t think anyone on campus feels like they don’t have someone to turn to or they don’t feel connected to something bigger even though it is a smaller boarding school."
Insight: Sam ’12
“I strongly believe that I would not have a Division I college basketball scholarship without going to New Hampton. My coaches have promoted me and helped me get my name out there. The resources I have at New Hampton with the gym, workout room, and coaches are unreal, and living away from home is something I’m used to now. Also, I know how to balance a hard academic schedule and a hard basketball workload. I feel like I have gotten the hang of it by going to New Hampton.”

Profile: Jet ’10
A four-year varsity football player, captain his senior year, leader in rushing, you might think Jethro is all about football. That’s OK. Jet used to think that too. Then he came to New Hampton and started meeting fellow students from other countries and hanging out with kids with different interests and talents. With a little encouragement from faculty mentors, he also realized his own determination could get him through even the toughest classes. (For example, Economics: Initially he really wanted to drop it, but he persevered and ultimately earned an A for both the final exam and the course.) “I found out I was a really good student,” says Jet, who plays football at Lafayette College. “I found out I could be a pretty good public speaker, and I even tried to learn to play the guitar and piano. I was just an athlete at my old school. At New Hampton, I could define myself by so much more."
