Summer Institutes

Join us for a professional development opportunity this summer.

At Pomfret, the Institute makes significant resources available for faculty to experiment with emerging teaching methods and pursue ongoing professional development so that they may design and deliver innovative programs in and out of the classroom. But you don't have to be a Pomfret teacher to participate in one of these programs. They are open to any educator or administrator who wants to learn and grow in the company of likeminded peers.


Departmental Leadership

Effective departmental leadership is the key to implementing any curricular change initiative, yet many department chairs have little or no formal leadership training.

Residential Leadership

Facilitated by a team of residential life experts, take a deep dive into topics for developing excellence throughout residential and student life programming. 


Just as our schools have made thinking more visible in the classroom ​during the last decade, we ​have begun the journey to​ ​make well-being even more visible throughout all facets of school life. 

Central to the culture of teaching and learning at Pomfret is the belief that we are all works-in-progress. If you agree, we invite and encourage you to check out the three professional development opportunities we are hosting this summer. Whether you're preparing to transform your residential life program, taking the reins as a department head, or seeking to prioritize wellbeing, we have a program for you.
