Requirements and Materials
We’re eager to see what matters to applicants, what drives them, what inspires them
The application process includes an electronic application—a chance to document a student’s life in and out of the classroom—and an on-campus interview. The interview is a friendly conversation with the New Hampton School community; applicants tour campus with students, observe classes in action, and meet with a member of the school’s admission team.
As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability we prefer that you complete our application online.

In addition to our own application, New Hampton School welcomes the common applications found on the
The Association of Boarding Schools website
We request on-campus interviews for all applicants. (If not possible, please call to arrange for an alternate site or a SKYPE or phone interview.)
Interviews take 2-3 hours and give applicants an opportunity to see NHS and meet teachers, coaches, and students.
Interviews can be scheduled Monday-Friday, and some Saturdays. Please call the Admission Office to schedule your visit.
If you have a specific request to meet a coach or program director, please let us know when scheduling your interview.

For 9th and 10th graders, register for and take the SSAT placement exam. For SSAT registration, please check the Web site at
