Update September 28, 2020:
While we hope to host reunion on campus in June of 2021, all plans remain on hold at this point. We wish you all well and hope you are safe.

If we do indeed host reunion in 2021, it will likely include the classes of 1950–1951, 1955-57, 1960-61, 1964–66, 1970-71, 1975-77, 1979–81, 1989–91, 1996-97, 2005-10, 2014–16

Reuniting with your Putney School pals feels so good.

Reunion Schedule

Here’s the 2019 reunion schedule. The 2021 schedule will be similar.
(Note that the schedule is a work in progress and might change slightly.)

The cost to attend reunion is all-inclusive, and covers activities, meals, and drinks. The 60th reunion classes and older may attend at no cost to them other than transportation (this includes on-campus lodging, but does not include off-campus lodging).

“Full weekend” = Friday to Sunday. Class of ’70 and ’71 do not pay extra for Thursday arrival.
“Partial weekend” = Anything less than the above

Additional Details

On-campus housing is available in single or double rooms, with shared bathrooms. Each reunion class or group will have its own dorm. Contact your friends if you’re hoping to room together or near each other, and just let us know your roommate preference. Alumni are welcome to stay Sunday night in the dorms as well, at no extra charge, if they would like to spend an extra day on campus.

If you would prefer to stay off campus, we have a list of local accommodations.

Kids’ Activities
On Saturday morning, we’ll offer kids’ play time, supervised by Putney students, and on Saturday night, you can enjoy your class banquet with friends while Putney students entertain your kids with pizza and movies in a dorm common room. Sign up for kids’ activities at the registration desk.

Car: We suggest you use Google Maps if you’re relying on your phone or your computer for directions. Both the front and back ways are marked with green signs that say “The Putney School.” The school’s address is 418 Houghton Brook Rd, Putney, VT 05346.

Air: The nearest airport is Bradley International in Hartford, CT.  You could also fly into Manchester, NH, as well as Boston, MA, although Boston is at least an hour farther away than Bradley or Manchester.

Train and Bus:  The train and bus both run to Brattleboro, VT.  You will need transportation up to campus once you arrive, so contact us if this is your plan, and we can help.

Rideshare information will be available on the reunion registration form.

Help Plan Reunion
Would you like to help plan your reunion?  Do you have ideas for class activities?  Are you willing to send a few emails and contact some friends?  If so, please contact us.  Word of mouth and encouragement from friends is, hands down, the most effective way to get a great reunion turnout.

We offer great food all weekend. Dinners include an open bar with beer and wine. Your registration costs covers meals and drinks for the entire weekend. From farm-fresh eggs to in-season pie, the food at Putney is always a treat. We’ll even have The Putney Special for those nostalgic souls.

You will be able to buy Putney gear throughout the weekend in the campus bookstore, located in Old Boys dorm.

We’ll post links to any Facebook groups that are created for the 2020 reunion. For now, you can join pages for Putney Boomers, Putney Alumni, and you can always “like” The Putney School.
