Portledge School is a leader among independent schools for educating students of high ability and leaders of character. We believe in honoring the gifts and talents of students and have developed a process to distinguish and award incoming students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, exceeding talent in a co-curricular offering or characteristics of true leadership potential.
Portledge School values excellence in scholarship and has an academic environment that offers students the chance to Explore, Create, and Excel in all areas of their studies. The academic program is supplemented by co-curricular offerings in the visual and theater arts, music, athletics and technology providing students the opportunity to develop and pursue passions beyond the classroom. And at the core of our community are the Portledge Pillars of citizenship which we define as Kindness, Purpose, Honor, and Respect. Student applicants who demonstrate excellence in the above are eligible to be recognized with small merit scholarship awards to honor these traits that strengthen our community and further our scholarly endeavors.
