The Smith Smarties, Mrs. Mann and Mrs. Cleveland have collaborated in a great way! Upper School Spanish 4 students are teaching us about prehistoric life through language and through art. We got acquainted today and it was so much fun!

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.
