Pomfret offers that rare combination of excellent academics, top level athletic programming and a strong sense of community and school spirit. The campus is absolutely beautiful and with 500 + acres the facilities can't be beat. In fact, the facilities are better than most small colleges. The low student-teacher ratio ensures student learning. Pomfret hockey, boys and girls soccer and boys and girls basketball are annually among the top rated prep school teams every year and seem to always make the NEPSAC tournament.

Excellent environment for learning. The teachers genuinely care about their students and provide lots of hands on experience. Chapel reunions happen every week and are a great opportunity for the school to tune in. Coming from another country, I found a very warm and welcoming community. What I found different from my country school system is that everything is studied in depth and the teachers are there to guide you all the way in class and outside the classroom.
I Loved Pomfret when I attended. The hilltop is a magical place and when I toured Pomfret it has that special feeling. I went to Jr Boarding School so I got to see a lot of campuses. The Faculty is amazing, the campus is a beautiful Fredrick Law Olmstead Co. design. Pomfret sports in in this weird in between tier 1 and tier 2 sports, but the sports facilities are top notch. The location is amazing. Halfway between Providence and Hartford , you're not too far away from a city but the campus has that rural feel which lets you leave the stress of the city and home behind. I would send my kids here and not trade my experience for anything
