Scholars, Servants, Leaders: The Curriculum of Wisdom, Service and Honor
Since 1905, Darlington's faculty and staff continue the tradition of preparing the next generation to meet tomorrow's challenges.
Academic programs seek to be intellectually rigorous and demand the best of students at each level, while acknowledging and respecting students’ differing abilities and learning preferences. We emphasize the pursuit of individual excellence in conjunction with the skills necessary for success in the future: collaboration, problem-solving, synthesis, conflict resolution, presentation skills, innovation, leadership, digital fluency, and global citizenship.
In the classroom, on the playing fields, in performance halls, and residence halls, we strive toward the first element of our mission statement: we empower students to learn with passion, a passion which can last a lifetime.
