Off-Campus Learning

Off-campus programs are led by Putney faculty with deep local experience, and are designed so that students live and study immersed in local cultures with opportunities to learn language experientially. 

Learning a language and gaining cultural fluency through immersion-based programs is very much a part of the ethos of progressive education. We strongly encourage our students to apply for a trimester abroad. It’s a transformative experience that positively contributes to their development as global citizens.

Putney offers trimesters abroad in Mexico, China, Morocco, Nicaragua, England, and France, as well as access to the Network of Complimentary Schools, a two-week exchange with one of many schools across the country.

Applications are due in mid-April. Students are chosen on the basis of language study, ability to be good ambassadors, and considerations of group balance. The costs of trimester programs are airfare, plus spending money.
