Putney School Summer

Our program is for high school students, rising freshmen to rising seniors. You are eligible if, during this school year, you are in 8th, 9th, 10th or 11th grade. Students who are homeschooled or in ungraded programs are welcome. You can expect students here to be between ages 14 to 17.

You must also, through your application, show us that you are excited about spending three or six weeks focused on the arts, and that you expect to work hard. As one student put it: Putney is easy-going and relaxed but at the same time rigorous and demanding.

Arts workshops:
Visual Arts - animation, ceramics, drawing, filmmaking, glass arts, jewelry, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, wearable arts, weaving
