A Darlington student is made up of many things. None of which is average. We help our students develop their interests, passions and pursuits, because we believe every individual has something to contribute. We also believe that only when you're 100% you, are you 100% Darlington. 

Here at Darlington, every student’s path is different. We think that's a good thing. 

In this #SeniorSpotlight let’s get to know Jonathan Murphy, a four-year boarding student from Fayetteville, N.C., one of Darlington’s National Merit Scholarship Commended Students and a College Board National African American Scholar.
