    RETAINING YOUR IDENTITY

    “I used to go to a massive public school where I felt like one small person who blended in with everyone. Here, I am a meaningful part of something that is bigger than myself, but I have still retained my own identity. I’ve created bonds that will last a lifetime. It is a testament to how close we are when guys who are from different parts of the country and world bond together and become brothers.”

    BEING PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER
    “One of my favorite moments while participating in the diversity club happened when I, along with two other students, was asked to prepare a discussion about the recent death of George Floyd and the impact that racism has on the New Hampton School community. The duration of the zoom call was approximately two hours. This was undoubtedly my favorite moment because I was a part of something bigger than myself. During the discussion, I felt like my voice was being heard, and I also learned a lot from listening to my peers and teachers. I believe that the discussion helped me grow as a person.”

    BEING PUSHED OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
    “When I came to New Hampton as a freshman, I was a shy kid with very low self-esteem. My favorite memory was when Mr. Masterson asked me to perform for the first time. I had never done anything like it before, and it really pushed me outside of my comfort zone. I now really enjoy performing, seeing the excitement of the audience, feeling the connection between my bandmates and myself up on stage, and just expressing my love of music. It is an experience like no other.”

    TRADITIONS
    “My favorite tradition is International Night. This is a night where the whole community comes together to celebrate all the countries that represent New Hampton School. I love this night because the food is AMAZING and the performances afterward are always so fun to watch. The Dining Hall is filled with student-made dumplings, sushi, crepes, pork schnitzel, and sweets from so many different countries! I love being able to submerge myself into cultures and learn from my peers.”

    BEING A BOARDING STUDENT
    “It takes time to settle into a new lifestyle. This is the first time I have lived away from my parents, but New Hampton helped me adapt and now I love it. Get involved in the community as much as possible because that’s how to meet new friends.”

    HOUSE LEADERSHIP
    “I am a Proctor, so I am responsible for being the liaison between the students and the house parents in my house. I help make the dorm a safe and fun environment. As a boarding student, it has been really fun. I am surrounded by my friends and am always pretty happy. I can still find times to be by myself, which is really important.”

    SCHOOL COMMUNITY
    “I chose New Hampton because the school is more than just a school. It’s like your living in a town full of your friends. You can’t beat that. A community filled with love and diversity. No other school had that in my eyes.”

    FINDING YOURSELF
    “High school is normally a time where you feel peer pressured and want to fit in. At New Hampton, you are encouraged to find what you love and to pursue new experiences, which transforms everyone in a different and unique way. The faculty encourage individuality and want to hear your opinions. Here, you are able to truly find ‘yourself’ while peers and faculty wholeheartedly support you.”

    SEIZING OPPORTUNITIES
    “My favorite moment came when the Admissions Office asked me to welcome accepted students to Revisit Day. This was a very special moment for me because that’s when I realized the school, that I love, loved me. I was given this opportunity to represent them in such a big way. Boarding school will teach you how to become self-sufficient and help you discover parts of yourself. To get the most out of your boarding school experience, you must put yourself out there and try new things. New Hampton will provide you with many opportunities to broaden your horizon, but you must be willing to take it.”

    DECIDING TO ATTEND AN INDEPENDENT SCHOOL
    “Go! It might seem scary, but you will get comfortable very quickly. I may not be a boarding student, but I understand the fears of leaving home. My freshman year I didn’t know anyone. However, through preseason soccer and freshmen orientation I got to know people and make friends that I know I will have forever. The house parents and proctors are always helpful in the dorms and are always kind and welcoming even to a visiting day student like myself.”

    BEING GRATEFUL
    “Boarding school will teach you so many new things, which gets you ready for your future life. You will find many great friends who may become your friends for the rest of your life. You will see a completely different attitude of teachers who are always here for you. Boarding school will make you more mature and independent. You will be grateful for things your parents are doing for you, which you might have taken for granted.”

    THE PERFECT FIT
    “I was looking for a school that would give me the opportunity to study the IB diploma and also play hockey. I wanted this school to have a welcoming community and a strong international program. New Hampton was the perfect fit. It’s an amazing place where you can focus on what you want and become the best version of yourself. It’s really important to choose a school that fits your personality, hobbies, and your future plans.”

    TRUSTING YOUR HEART AND TAKING RISKS
    “There are too main pieces of advice I would give to a student thinking about boarding school. The first is to trust your heart. In my experience, and as I’ve heard from other students, you often know in your heart that you do or don’t belong at a certain school. My second piece of advice is to be willing to take a risk. The thought of boarding school can definitely be scary, and a lot of people might be intimidated at the thought of leaving home, but it is absolutely worth it. I was nervous, but after four years I wouldn’t change it for the world. There can be challenges, but there will always be people there to support you. Before you know it, you will fall in love with the community.”

    STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
    “People at New Hampton School are enthusiastic and have school spirit. It was so welcoming and encouraging from the very first day. Everyone here is very inclusive and understanding. If you are ready to leave home and become more self-sufficient, this is a great opportunity to learn to expand your knowledge and step out of your comfort zone.”

    BELONGING TO A COMMUNITY
    “I chose New Hampton School over others because of the sense of community I felt when I took my tour here. The community felt stronger than other schools. I needed the feeling of actually belonging to a community since I’m not the most outgoing person, and it turned out the school was a perfect fit for me. Now that I’m used to New Hampton, I challenge myself by taking hard classes and trying out some new sports I’ve never played before. I’m really glad that I made the right choice four years ago.”
