WORK PROGRAM At Northfield Mount Hermon, all

students participate equally in the daily work of the school so that they may cultivate

a respect for the dignity of labor and service to the community both within and beyond the school. In the work program, students and adults work together to provide essential daily work to the school community. Participation in this work by all students has been an integral component of the curriculum since the founding of the school. All students must work four hours per week and attain a passing grade each term in order to graduate.
