Join us for the 127th Commencement of Pomfret School.

Your child has accomplished so much to get here. Now it's time for us to celebrate those achievements live and in-person! Commencement will take place on Sunday, May 23 at 1:00 p.m. This year, each senior can invite up to four guests. The ceremony will be preceded by an al fresco picnic lunch from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. William Tong, attorney general for the State of Connecticut, will be our graduation speaker. We look forward to hosting you!

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.
