Arrival Days 2022

It's going to be amazing!

The 2022–2023 school year is almost here, and we cannot wait to see you! This year, we will repopulate campus over two days. Prefects, preseason athletes, BIPOC students, and international students are invited to arrive on Monday, September 5. All remaining students are invited to arrive on Wednesday, September 7. Oh, and if you are new to the Hilltop, this interactive campus map will help you get around.


Confirm your arrival day.

RSVP Today

The deadline to RSVP is Monday, August 15.




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.
