SEPTEMBER IS ALMOST HERE and we cannot wait to see you! Prefects, QUEST leaders, BIPOC students, and international students should plan to arrive on Monday, September 4. All remaining students, including day students, should plan to arrive on Tuesday, September 5. If you are a preseason athlete, please visit the preseason athletic resource page to learn more about the ins and outs of your particular schedule. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Administration Process and Collaboration Manager Katie Watkins at or (860) 963-6113.



There are two good restaurants within walking distance of Pomfret. Downtown Putnam also has a number of great options. For lunch, we suggest the Vanilla Bean in Pomfret. For dinner, we suggest 85 Main in Putnam.


The Quiet Corner is home to a number of small bed and breakfasts, and a smattering of larger hotels. The Inn at Woodstock Hill, about 10 minutes away, is a wonderful choice. Comfort Inn and Suites, in nearby Dayville, is another popular (less expensive) option.
