Upper School Tiger PRIDE (Parents Rallying in the Interest of Darlington Education) is the parent
organization dedicated to promoting volunteer interest among parents in support of the school, and
engaging in activities promoting the enrichment of all students, faculty, and staff of students in grades 9-
Tiger PRIDE sponsors many important school functions, such as Back to School Bash, Faculty
Appreciation Week and Luncheon, Junior-Senior Prom, Spring Dance, Baccalaureate Reception, the
used uniform sale, and the ever-popular DAR Family Program. Additionally, Tiger PRIDE decorates the
Upper School campus for Christmas. They also sponsor several awards on Honors Day and award faculty
grants for continuing education.
The DAR (Day and Resident) Family program is an opportunity for Darlington parents to support
residential students while giving day students an opportunity to get involved with residential life. The
DAR family liaisons promote day and resident interaction by hosting on campus mixers, house dinners,
and activities throughout the school year. The time commitment is up to the individual since a team of
people serve each house. Parents may choose to be involved throughout the year or help with one specific
event. All we ask is a willingness to embrace students from different cultures and help us promote the
caring spirit of the Darlington community.
Parent involvement is critical to the success of Darlington and is essential to the success of our parent
organizations. Your participation will greatly enhance our students’ Darlington experience. Parents are
encouraged to attend our regularly scheduled meetings which are listed in the school calendar.
