One way is to choose “Activities” then click your class year, and then click on your classmates’ name (While you’re there, you can find information on your other classmates as well). Or, you can choose “Directory,” and either enter a last name, or choose “Advanced Search” and select a “grad year.”

A. The Porter’s website has areas available to the public and password-protected areas. To protect Ancients’ privacy, all alumnae must log on to access the directory, Class Notes, Mentoring Network, class pages, and their individual profiles. Through their profiles, Ancients can select how much of their information they want shared on the password-protected directory. The policy on appropriate use of the directory is posted on the directory page.
A. Your gift to the school really makes all the difference. No matter what size contribution you are able to make, your participation sends the message that you believe in the mission of Miss Porter’s School. The percentage of Ancients who contribute to the Annual Fund every year is a tangible measure that others such as foundations and prospective families look at closely when deciding whether to make a grant or send their daughters to the school. The higher the participation (which was just 40% in 2013-14), the stronger the message that those closest to the school value the experience they had, and want available to other girls.
The Annual Fund is not an extraneous luxury. Every year, the school anticipates that approximately 13% of the operating budget will be covered by the Annual Fund. This year, it is essential to raise $2.1 million through the Annual Fund. Quite simply, without it, the school can only operate at 89%. Each gift makes a difference in reaching that goal.
