Work closely and cooperatively with professional artists, writers and performers in the visual arts, the performing arts, and creative writing on a spectacular hilltop campus in southern Vermont.
The Putney School Summer Programs offer students the opportunity for in-depth exploration in the visual arts, performing arts, and creative writing, as well as sustainability through our Farm Program. Our ESOL- Program for International Education for non-native English speakers offers English-language classes and accelerated learning through language immersion. We enroll 135 students in each 3-week session.
Workshops form the core of the day. Students enroll in two half-day workshops-one in the morning, one in the afternoon.
We welcome students to apply who are ready to take risks in their creative work, to learn new things and get better at what they already know, and to be a responsible member of this diverse and close-knit community. The Summer Programs enrolls teenagers from all over the world. We look forward to receiving your application.
From the Director
At Putney, you can follow your passions in serious but fun studios and workshops. You’ll explore and develop skills as you express yourself and take risks in your work as you grow. You’ll be encouraged to collaborate, challenged to problem solve, and supported as you dive into your work. Bring your ideas and come open to meet new people. I look forward to welcoming you.
- Tom Howe, Summer Programs Director
