"It's good. It's really good.
This was an outstanding week. You should do this."

 — Neil Chaudhary, Science Department Chair, The Loomis Chaffee School

Set on a stunning hilltop in rural Northeastern Connecticut, Pomfret has been called one of the most beautiful schools in the world. Studded by maples and ringed by stone walls, our 500-acre Hilltop campus exudes New England charm. As a guest of the Grauer Institute, you will be housed in a private room overlooking the heart of campus. A commuter option is also available.

Rooms are single occupancy with access to a shared bathroom. Double-occupancy rooms are available upon request. All linens are provided. Both the dorm and commuter options include all your meals. In addition, you'll have access to the school’s fitness center, wooded trail system, yoga studio, tennis center, and squash courts. Your registration fee also includes complimentary airport transfers to and from PVD, BDL, and BOS. It's a pretty good deal!
