What is Miss Porter’s School Looking for?


A part of the mission statement for Miss Porter’s School is

“…We expect our graduates to shape a changing world.”

school’s dynamic, rigorous approach to education, they

are preparing girls to expand their minds and grow into

socially engaged, confident, young women.  Porter’s

looks for well rounded applicants who can highlight their

school and love learning.  Students who are deeply invested in their communities, dream big and think broadly.
