What it means to be human.
Well-being courses offer students the opportunity to engage with mind, body, and spirit and to confront what it means to be human. Using six foundational dimensions of wellbeing as the framework for designing our teaching and learning, the rich array of elective courses provides students with varied experiences and real time tools that enable them to integrate wellbeing into their academic experience, social-emotional development, and daily lives.
Each of our course offerings help crystallize for students the deeper focus of education which is necessarily grounded in the work of realizing human potential, deepening relationships, finding purpose and meaning in their lives, enhancing positive emotions, prioritizing physical and mental health, and flourishing as human beings. All Pomfret School students are required to take Foundations of Well-being in their sophomore or junior year, in addition to one elective course in their junior or senior year.
Foundations of Wellbeing is required in either sophomore or junior year. Students must also take one Wellbeing elective course in junior or senior year.
