Seventh Grade Placement

Graduation 2018

“My children graduated from NPS happy, confident, and ready for their next challenge.” 

Outplacement Support

Renowned for academic sophistication, confidence, and compassion, our graduates are highly sought after by a wide array of schools in seventh grade.

Starting in the spring of Fifth Grade, our Outplacement Team, comprised of the Head of School, Director of Upper Division and Outplacement, and the Sixth Grade Teachers, engages students and parents in a hugely personal and hands-on placement process helping to identify schools that are a good fit, guiding them throughout the application process, and advocating for children at the schools to which they apply.
