Freshmen Fundamentals

A carefully designed track and sequence.

As a freshman and sophomore, you will be exposed to a broad array of choices and options — think of them as building blocks — that will branch and narrow as you grow and mature. By the time you reach your junior and senior course selections, all that careful planning will set you up for college, and life.

The beginning of that journey is a yearlong course we call Freshman Fundamentals, which takes a thematic approach to the study of third form humanities. By uniting English and history under a single essential question that changes each term, this team-taught program provides a foundational course for all freshmen while also maintaining the curricular integrity of each individual course.

As a freshman, you'll also participate in an Arts Immersion program designed to help you develop your imagination, improve your problem solving abilities, and hone your skills in written and oral presentation. Armed with this experience in self-expression, reflection and metacognition, you'll make more informed choices about your course of study for your remaining three years at Pomfret.
