Take a campus tour.

Complete the application.

Pomfret uses the Standard Application Online (SAO) for all candidates. Applications are due by January 15. An application includes the following components: applicant information, application fee ($60 for domestic applicants; $125 for international applicants), student essays, parent questionnaire, current and prior year transcripts, recommendations (current math teacher, English teacher, and school official), and graded writing sample.

International Applicants

The application process is the same for both international and domestic students. However, students whose first language is not English are expected to take the TOEFL exam. For applicants residing in and attending school in locations where test centers are currently closed, Pomfret will accept the IELTS Indicator, Duo Lingo (DET), TOEFL IBT Special Home Edition and TOEFL ITP Plus Vericant until regular testing resumes. Pomfret’s TOEFL test code is 8141. We do not accept TOEFL Junior to meet testing requirements.

International applicants attending school in China, Hong Kong, or Taiwan are required to complete an in-person or remote interview with Vericant. In most instances, the Vericant interview will serve as the only interview for an applicant's file.
