The Putney School:
The Putney School is an independent co-educational boarding school for grades 9-12 in Putney, Windham County, southern Vermont, just 115 miles from Boston and 213 miles from New York City. The Putney School is an educational community where expectations are high, and friendships are close. In addition to a challenging college preparatory academic curriculum with AP, SAT and ACT courses, each student participates in the arts and in music to develop skills that will bring lifelong enjoyment. We also provide evening art classes, project week, a work program, summer school and an ESOL program.
Located on a 500-acre hilltop farm in southern Vermont, Putney's campus includes organic gardens, sugarbush, a dairy farm, and 40 kilometers of groomed x-c ski trails. The school is graced by its beautiful setting and long tradition of excellence in education.
There is airline service to Bradley Airport in Hartford, Connecticut, as well as to Manchester, New Hampshire. There is train and bus service to Brattleboro, Vermont.
Students are spread across campus in nine small dorms, ranging from 10 to 30 students. Each dorm is led by two to three faculty Dorm Heads, living in apartments attached to each dorm. Many dorm parents have children and pets, which gives dorms an "extended family" feeling, and regularly have their doors open for students to stop in for homework help, advice, or just a snack and a chat.
Dorms and individual rooms at Putney are simple and small, yet very functional and comfortable. The majority of our rooms are doubles, with some singles and triples, and all open to common hallways and living spaces.
Each room is sparsely furnished with bed, desk, chair, dresser, closet space and direct connection to the internet. Students quickly decorate their rooms in their own style, making the simple space their own personalized retreat – their home away from home.
