The Putney School is both creative and grounded, visionary and practical, both academically rigorous and culturally informal. We are progressive and believe that teenagers are capable and trustworthy.
International students can come to Putney for one, two, three or four years of high school. We have a strong English as a Second Language (ESOL) program, so if you need to improve your English, you will take ESOL classes as part of your schedule. Students who are already proficient in English can join our regular (mainstream) courses. All students must take at least one full year of these mainstream classes to graduate with a Putney diploma. If you have already finished high school in your country, and want a one-year experience in an American school, we also offer a Post-Graduate (PG) year for students like you.
