Parents are a vibrant and essential part of the Porter's community. As such, it is our goal to form a strong alliance with parents as we work together to ensure our students' success.
Day and boarding parents are always welcome to visit campus or to schedule a meeting with a teacher, administrator or house director as needed. We encourage boarding parents also consider a weekend or two in Farmington to connect with their daughter and to explore our historic New England town. At different points throughout the year, there are campus events that should not be missed, including Family Weekend, Grandparents' Day, graduation, and coffees with Head of School Kate Windsor.
Parents are also invited to attend our extensive guest speaker series. The full schedule of speakers is available on the bottomw right-hand side of this page. Frequently, there are receptions immediately prior to or following these lectures, so please be on the lookout for your invitation in electronic communications from school.
Parents receive a weekly newsletter from Porter's on Thursday evenings at 5 p.m. These newsletters contain information about student life as well as updates and reminders about school events. If you are not receiving the parent newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, we thank you for the privilege of educating your daughter.
