Pomfret School

398 Pomfret St, PO Box 128, Pomfret, CT 06258

William E. Peck, the former principal of St. Mark's School, established Pomfret as a preparatory school for boys. The school instituted coeducation in 1968, however, and now enrolls a varied student body that represents roughly 30 states and a dozen foreign countries. Pomfret offers a varied curriculum with a wide range of electives to supplement a mandatory core of traditional courses. The school's curriculum comprises both yearlong classes and term courses that last for one or two trimesters. Students typically take six courses per term. Honors and Advanced Placement sections are available in all academic disciplines. All boys and girls enroll in one class in Pomfret's digital arts department, which offers course work in graphics, design, film, animation and mechanical engineering. A cocurricular structure allows students to devote part of the day to athletics and the arts. Each pupil enrolls in arts courses the equivalent of two trimesters per year; classes, which convene during the week and every other Saturday, combine theory and instruction with hands-on work in the studio. All students are also involved in the athletic program, with options for both interscholastic and intramural participation.
