Mission & Core Values

New Hampton School cultivates lifelong learners who will serve as active global citizens

We define global citizenship as:
  • Experiencing, exploring, and appreciating world cultures, traditions, histories, languages, and religions.
  • Connecting to relevant economic, social, and political issues to gain a sense of international-mindedness.
  • Engaging with real world issues to gain optimism, compassion, and empathy for individuals and communities that differ from those we know.
  • Using analytical thinking and social skills to be creative and to communicate effectively through academics, athletics, artistic expression, and service.
  • Increasing awareness of our relationship and responsibility to global sustainability.
We enhance the potential of students and promote academic success and development of caring community members. Our students are talented artists, athletes, and leaders who often learn best through hands-on experiences.

We live each day by our core values
