Porter's SUMMER Programs

Located in the center of Farmington, Connecticut, Porter’s is a college preparatory boarding and day school for girls in grades nine through 12. Founded in 1843 by lifelong scholar and educator, Sarah Porter, our school’s dynamic, rigorous approach to education prepares girls to expand their minds and grow into socially engaged, confident young women. 

Our Summer Programs are designed to provide girls the opportunity to experience Porter's academic, artistic, athletic and residential curriculum and community. Girls thrive in our supportive and collaborative environment where curiosity and confidence are encouraged, and they complete their programs with a greater understanding of all they can accomplish as informed, bold, resourceful, ethical citizens. For more information, please contact the Office of Admission.


Porter's Summer Programs are for girls entering grades seven through nine. Pricing, except for Porter's CHAT, is $1,250 for each session, inclusive of all meals, housing and activitites. 

**Non-native English speakers must enroll in Porter's CHAT if they do not score an 80 or above on the TOEFL. If a student has not taken the TOEFL they must have at least 2 years of English in their home school and submit by email a graded English essay. We reserve the right to assess students’ English skills upon arrival and place them in the English Immersion program should their language abilities inhibit their effective participation in/enjoyment of the program of their choice.**
