Reimagining what a boarding school
can and should be.
Rooted in the timeless, hard-won truths of an institution more than a century in the making, Pomfret recently refined its mission and vision, codified its values, and released an updated strategic plan. These changes have set the stage for a new and exciting era in the history of this remarkable Institution.
Explore our Priorities
The Pomfret Fund remains the single most impactful way you can make a difference in the life of the School and in support of this campaign. Ninety percent of campaign donors give to the Pomfret Fund.
Additionally, we have identified three key priorities: the construction of a new center for science, technology, engineering, and design; the advancement of teaching and learning; and the expansion of access and affordability.
We have raised $60 Million to date.
Attend an Event
To celebrate the launch of Amplify, we are hosting events all over the country, starting with New York City and Boston this fall. We have also teamed up with Emmy Award-winning video production company Timber + Frame to make a short film about the Pomfret Experience. When you attend a campaign event, you’ll get the chance to see this mini-doc for yourself, surrounded by people who know and love Pomfret as much as you do.
