Darlington School is a coeducational day and boarding school established in 1905. At Darlington, we do more than prepare our students for college. We prepare them for life by emphasizing the pursuit of individual excellence in a diverse learning environment. Our students are the center of all that we do. Together, we challenge them to learn with passion, act with integrity, and serve with respect.
Each year, Darlington enrolls approximately 900 students in grades pre-K to 12. Our school community represents an average of 25 states and 30 countries worldwide. Stretching for more than 400 acres, Darlington’s campus is nestled around a small lake in the foothills of the Lookout Mountain Range in Rome, Ga., a medical center and college town located one hour from Atlanta and Chattanooga, Tenn.
In 2005, Darlington celebrated its centennial anniversary and the appointment of Tom Whitworth as headmaster. Since then, the school has introduced many successful student-centered initiatives, including a Teaching and Learning Center, programs to emphasize character education and servant leadership, and a $90 million Second Century Campaign.
