Rectory School

An Independent, Coed, Junior Boarding (5-9) and Day School (Early Childhood-9)

Elementary School (K-4)

Explore, Engage, Empower

If you are looking for an enriching environment where your child can be guided and encouraged to discover his or her unique social, emotional, and cognitive potential while experiencing the importance of community, then Rectory is the school for YOUR child!

Rectory's safe and nurturing environment enables all children to feel valued and empowered. As a result, they are active thinkers and learners who give their very best by exercising their mind, body, and spirit. Our beautiful new elementary wing was designed to enhance our educational vision. Students can work independently or collaborate with their peers in classrooms, hallways, and gathering spaces--both inside and outside. Families are always welcome and very involved in their children’s experiences, which leads to success and inspires a love of learning—the heart of our philosophy!

ES Ice Skating

Thanks to the generosity of our friends at Pomfret School, the elementary children will bring their Movement Class over to the Jahn Rink every Tuesday in January and February. Teachers, parents, siblings, and often grandparents join the elementary school students for the physical activity and camaraderie on the ice.

On Tuesday, November 26, the ES children will dress in their Formal Attire to welcome their families and friends to their Fall Term Projects Fair. The children will arrive at 8:00 a.m. and each classroom will include our guests in our Morning Meetings.
