Upcoming Events

The Miss Porter’s School community of Ancients, parents, and friends gather at many events across the globe throughout the year, reuniting members of the Porter's family in the spirit of Farmington. 
The Miss Porter’s School Alumnae Association boasts a membership of 5,907. The Ancient network is a meaningful lifelong connecter, one that is unique. Ancients value their experience and pay it forward by giving back to school through volunteerism, serving as class representative, members of the Alumnae Board or as Trustees of the school. Ancients visit school and host students in their professional settings, opening up new worlds and possibilities for the girls and enriching their academic experience. Extraordinary philanthropic support from our Ancients provides the resources to enhance our beautiful historic campus, deepen the InterMission offerings, provide scholarships to deserving students and strengthen the endowment fund.

We welcome you back with open arms, and encourage you to visit and to volunteer. When you return to Farmington, you will be reminded that there is a fundamental bond that links each generation of Ancients to Miss Porter’s School. Each day we continue the mission of our founder to provide young women with the finest and most rigorous liberal arts education. Each day we are certain that within our legacy lies our future.
