At Miss Porter's School, the Afternoon Program is essential to our mission. It invokes the spirit and enhances the educational environment within which Miss Porter's School prepares its students to become architects of their own experience.
The flexibility inherent in the program and the athletic requirement provide students with both the opportunity to deeply invest in activities and interscholastic sports that interest them and the chance to explore activities they have not been exposed to previously. We encourage you to review the full list of offerings available in the 2014-2015 school year.
It is our hope that the expansion of the Afternoon Program will support the school's educational philosophy while empowering our students to more fully explore their talents, passions, and budding interests.
Requirements: All students must participate in the afternoon program all three seasons; fall, winter, and spring. New Girls must participate in one Porter’s Afternoon Program “team" offering at some point in their first year. All students must participate in three "team" offerings before the start of their senior year.
Independent Activity/Special Project: An independent activity exempts a student from participation in one of the activity offerings for a season. An independent may be granted to a student in good academic, disciplinary (including attendance) standing who meets certain criteria.
