Join us for the 129th Commencement of Pomfret School.

Your child has accomplished so much to get here. Now it's time for us to celebrate those achievements! The 129th Commencement of Pomfret School will take place on Sunday, May 28 at 11:00 a.m. outdoors on the Clark Chapel Lawn. The ceremony will be followed by a luncheon in the dining hall, beginning at 12:30 p.m. We look forward to hosting you.

The 2023 Commencement Speaker is Frances Lumpkin Webster ’91. Frances is the CEO of Walrus, a New York City-based advertising and media agency she co-founded with her husband Deacon Webster ’91 in 2005.

Family and friends who are unable to attend Commencement Weekend are invited to watch Baccalaureate and Commencement at


There is no limit to the number of people who can attend Commencement, but we do ask that you register. The deadline to RSVP is Monday, May 1, 2023.



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.

Don't forget to tell us you are coming.
Register today!

The deadline is Monday May 1, 2023.
