Why Choose Darlington's Upper School?

Whether you are a prospective family that is visiting the school for the first time, entering as a new student, or returning to your alma mater, you will surely find today’s Darlington both welcoming and inspiring.

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.

In planning for a photo feature that will appear in the next issue of Darlington Magazine, I decided to interview members of this year's senior class to learn more about their unique Darlington experiences and see what they value most. Read one of the interviews here and stay tuned for more from the Class of 2014 in the next magazine!

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.
