Open the door to your future.

In 1843, educating young women was unconventional, even a bit radical. Today, it’s a badge of honor—and we wear it proudly! 

Your education at Porter’s will meet your needs and strengthen your interests. Classmates, teachers and the entire MPS community will encourage and challenge you. Upon graduation, you will join the global network of alumnae — Ancients — who are informed, bold, resourceful and ethical global citizens. Join us. We are waiting for you.

Welcome to Porter’s!
