our mission
Miss Porter’s School educates young women to become informed, bold, resourceful and ethical global citizens.

We expect our graduates to
shape a changing world.

our vision
In keeping with our founder’s vision, Miss Porter’s School joins tradition with innovation to provide an exemplary education to young women. Generation after generation, our leadership is defined by our ability to articulate how young women think, how young women learn, and why gender matters.

Within our legacy lies our future.

our community call to action

We are the living legacy of Sarah Porter. At a time when women were undervalued, she created an intentional community for young women to gain greater agency in their lives. In doing so, Miss Porter’s School supported future pioneers and leaders to reach their full potential.

While Sarah Porter’s vision was radically brave in nature, it was not accessible to all women. In order to fully realize an inclusive vision of education for all young women, we must interrogate our history while cultivating the future of our community.

Like our founder, we are both bold in our desire for change and limited by the scope of our experience. To expand Sarah Porter’s vision to be more fully inclusive and equitable, we must:

  • commit to the work of building a school community rooted in the inherent worth and dignity of each member, with courage and integrity;
  • grapple with the responsibility of enacting change, both within and beyond our time in Farmington;
  • hold ourselves accountable for our own limitations, while forging a foundation for future leaders to fix the mistakes we leave behind.

 

In doing so, we contribute to a more just chapter in our institution’s legacy.
