Dorm Life

As one of the first boarding schools in the country to embrace coeducation for high school, we have had a long time to work out the kinks, developing a residential program that nurtures, empowers, and teaches. Here are some facts:

• Students are spread across campus in nine small dorms, ranging from 10 to 30 students.
• Each dorm is led by two to three faculty dorm heads, living in apartments attached to each dorm.
• Many dorm parents have children and pets, which gives dorms an "extended family" feeling. 
• Student dorm heads also help coordinate many of the dorm activities and functions and help counsel younger students on balancing their work and social lives at Putney.

On-Campus Recreation

Yes, it's a busy schedule. But it's not without free time to spend in a variety of places right here on campus:

Play music or dance in the Michael S. Currier Center
Draw, paint, sculpt, and make jewelry in the Wender Arts Building
• Work out, rock climb, hang out in the social room, or have a pick-up game in the Field House
• Cross-country ski, snowshoe, hike, run, or mountain bike on the wooded trails
• Make new friends in the barn
• Or just hang out with your friends from 17 countries and 24 states.
