Partnership Highlights

African Leadership Academy - Since 2011, Porter’s has welcomed one of the African Leadership Academy’s (ALA) graduates each year as a postgraduate student at our institution. During the 2016 InterMission Term, twenty-five Porter’s students and four faculty visited ALA, where our scholars joined ALA’s classes, studied Entrepreneurial Leadership, lived in school dormitories, visited the township of Munsieville and studied histories of racial division in South Africa. In 2017, Miss Porter’s School sent sixteen students and two faculty.
 
Kichijo Girls’ School - During the 2017 Intermission Term, sixteen Porter’s students and two faculty joined the Kichijo community for 15 days of homestays, Japanese language instruction, attending classes, participating in many extracurricular activities and connecting with Porter’s “Ancients” (alumnae). Through brief exchange programming at ISAK and Joshigakun High School, our students were able to create additional connections with their peers in Japan. In the 2018-2019 school year, Porter’s will be hosting one to two students from Kichijo.
 
RDFZ - In the 2017-2018 school year, Porter’s Advanced Topics in Mathematics class will collaborate with a math class at RDFZ, the High School Affiliated with Remnin University, Beijing, China to practice Mathematical Modeling by solving problems together.

“Thank you so much again for giving Kichijo this wonderful, precious opportunity!
 
I believe both MPS and Kichijo students will take active roles locally and globally when they become adults, and this InterMission Program, which gave them not only good times but also hardships sometimes, broadened their horizons, and I hope both students will make the best of what they learned through this program in the future!”
-Director of International Relations, Kichijo Girls’ School, Tokyo, Japan
