The Putney School is a progressive school that offers top-notch academics, a vibrant arts program, a beautiful outdoor life, and training in sustainable living. Students learn not only through traditional academic activities by also through experiential education, and they are responsible for working on the local land and carrying out tasks such as sugaring or maintaining trails. The school farm is home to award-winning milking cows, laying hens, cattle, oxen, horses, pigs, turkeys, and sheep. Read more about Putney, one of the first co-ed boarding schools in the country.
