At Darlington’s Upper School, high-achieving, academically driven students prepare to thrive in college and life, yet our commitment to students extends far beyond the classroom.

I love the first day of school. On the first day, the excitement and hope that surround another school year are abundant. Each child starts the year with a series of new challenges and new opportunities.

Read the Aug. 25 Rome News-Tribune article about the four sets of brothers who are calling Summerbell House "home" this year.

Darlington’s Motto is Wisdom More Than Knowledge, Service Beyond Self, Honor Above Everything. On our breathtaking campus, we engage in developing each student’s unique potential. At Darlington, academic rigor is embedded within 21st Century learning through collaboration, problem solving, technology integration, production, etc. Indeed, many students graduate with several years of college credits already completed. In preparing young adults for college and career, we work passionately to ensure all our students leave ready to achieve success while maintaining personal balance.

Darlington’s Upper School creates an accelerated college-prep experience. Our outstanding faculty, programs and facilities create a college-like experience, complete with many freedoms and responsibilities. For example, with parent permission, residential students may drive their own cars, and while here, students enjoy a full array of social and recreational opportunities. In this extended family, Darlington students join a global community. Darlington’s student body represents an average of 30 countries and 25 states each year. The boarding school experience develops self-reliance and teaches that while our students can never replace home, they might just realize it is possible to have many homes. In this remarkable setting we aim to develop their highest potential and, by so doing, prepare them to serve the world beyond.
