Here at Miss Porter's School, we refer to our cherished alumnae as Ancients. These women are the lifeblood of the larger Porter's community, one that extends across generations and continents to form the world's most powerful network of women. There is so much that unites graduates who have spent four years in Farmington, no matter if they are from the class of 2018 or 1948. We encourage you to make the most of this lasting relationship, connecting with your fellow Ancients to share tradition and uplift each other.

Graduway is an alumni networking platform that helps Ancients connect to one another through the directory, discussion groups, and mentoring opportunities. You must create an account to have access to the wonderful social and networking opportunities available. Contacting Ancients via the Graduway directory should be reserved for networking with the intent of professional growth or social connection, not with the intent of generating sales or business for yourself or others. We encourage you to share anything related to selling goods or services on the Graduway Business Directory. Use of Directory for the purpose of sales or other business purposes could result in suspension from the entire platform.

You can find information about your classmates through Graduway! You must create a Graduway account and get approved by the Alumnae and Development Office in order to have access to these features.  To search for your classmate, click  “Directory,” then use the search field to search for a name or organization. Using the “Filter by” section, you can search by location, graduation year, work experience, profession, education, etc. 

Please contact our current ring vendor, Jostens at 888-248-9084 and they will be able to assist you in ordering a new MPS ring.

The Porter’s website has both public and password-protected areas. To protect Ancients’ privacy, all alumnae must log on to Graduway to access the directory, Mentoring Network, class pages, and their individual profiles. Through their profiles, Ancients can select how much of their information they want shared in Graduway.

The MPS Annual Fund is responsible for about 12% of the school’s operating budget. Gifts designated to the Annual fund are generally unrestricted to provide flexibility and support where the School needs it most in an operating year. This essential component of our operating budget enhances the lives of our students and community, and covers a variety of areas such as: academic programming, athletics, campus technology, immediate-use scholarships, faculty salaries and benefits, student activities, and much more. Quite simply, without the Annual Fund, the School can only operate at 88% and would have to rely on raising tuition by about $6,000 per student to cover the full cost of educating the next generation of leaders here at MPS.

Beyond providing critical, current year funding that bridges the cost between what is provided by tuition and the endowment, an investment of any size is a vote of confidence in the mission, values, and future of Miss Porter’s School. The percentage of Ancients that participate in the Annual Fund also demonstrates that they valued their experience, and the higher the participation, the stronger the message that sends for the next generation of prospective students and their families.
