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.”

Porter’s seeks students who are serious about their academics as well as an extra-curricular activity (or activities) that are meaningful to them.  With the 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 interests, the activities that they are interested in and what kind of impact they hope to leave.  Students who love school and love learning.  Students who are deeply invested in their communities, dream big and think broadly.
