Share the Love
There is no place quite like Pomfret.
BY SUSAN MANTILLA-GOIN, DEAN OF ENROLLMENT MANAGEMENT
After a month of being on the Hilltop with all of our students, I feel the love they have for Pomfret. They are flourishing in their classes, advisory groups, athletics, and activities!
When I walk around campus, I see smiles, hear rich discussions about their projects, and am taken by the contagious laughter. As a new Griffin, I love what I am a part of and am always eager to share the Pomfret experience and community with others. I invite you to join me and share your love for Pomfret School.
If you have a younger child, I hope that they are considering joining the Griffin Pride. The admissions process for the 2022-2023 school year has begun and we are excited to welcome siblings of our current students to explore Pomfret. We have reserved Friday, October 29 exclusively for siblings of current students. If you are coming to campus for Family Weekend, please complete an inquiry online and contact us to schedule a tour of campus and their admissions interview. Current families do not need to submit an application to schedule an interview. Please keep in mind the application deadline is January 15, 2022.
If you have friends or extended family members who have incoming high school students, we want you to share your family’s love for Pomfret. Wear your Pomfret gear. Tell them what your child loves about being a Pomfret student — whether it’s QUEST programs, student-centered classes, or wonderful traditions like Senior Chapel Talks, Mashamoquet Day, or Sundial Ceremony — that bring friends together and reinforce our strong sense of community. Please extend an invitation to them to join us on campus at one of our Open Houses on Saturday, October 9, and Saturday, November 13. If they can’t join us in person, let them know we will be on the road and participating in or hosting virtual events.
If you don’t know anyone who has children who are applying to high schools, you can still share the love. If you are local, we extend an invitation to join us for our Admissions Tailgate on Saturday, October 16. Prospective families will be in attendance to watch a game and learn more about Pomfret. We encourage you to welcome them to the Hilltop and tell them everything you love about Pomfret.
We know there is no place quite like Pomfret. Together we can welcome more families to the place that we all love.
