What is The Putney School? We are both creative and grounded, visionary and practical. We are a community of people who think for themselves, invent, design, experiment, compose, write, build and chase down new ideas.

Think / Do
At Putney we believe people learn best by doing, rather than being told. Our students flourish with the freedom they have here.
Lead / Work
We value collaboration more than competition. Everyone plays an active role in running the community. Learn more about the the leadership opportunities available to our students
Self / Others
At Putney you will learn the art and skill of self-motivation and self-direction while working with others in an inclusive environment.
Home / World
We promote presence in community, in work, right now. We take what we learn off the hill and out into the world. Just like you, we want to make the world a better place.
Joy / Meaning
We see the joy that comes from meaningful inquiry and meaningful work. It’s happening all over campus. It can happen for you.
