About Northfield Mount Hermon School

Northfield Mount Hermon School is a co-ed college preparatory school located in western Massachusetts, close to the Vermont border. The school’s summer session is a rigorous academic program attended by 250 students each year. NMH Summer Session offers five programs: middle school (grades seven to nine), college prep (grades 10 to 13), English as a second language (grades seven to 13), New Zealand summer abroad (grades 10 to 12) and Spain summer abroad (grades nine to 12).

NMH Summer Session’s Teaching Intern Program introduces participants to teaching in a private school setting in one of the three on-campus programs. Interns assist an experienced teacher in morning major courses by conducting classroom observation, developing lesson plans, holding student conferences and teaching. Interns are responsible for putting together and teaching afternoon minor courses, which are held four afternoons a week and include subjects such as art, drama, community service, journalism and public speaking. Interns also supervise recreational activities, the afternoon sports program and dormitories.


Open to students who have completed at least their junior year in college, as well as recent graduates and grad students.
