Thank you for your interest in Darlington School and for taking this opportunity to visit us on the web! You can learn a lot about a school by visiting its website. I know that I did!
As I researched Darlington to see whether it would be the right fit for me and my family, the website was a critical resource; and I am happy to share that when we visited the Darlington campus in person, it was everything I expected and more.
What I see on the Darlington website (and in real life!) is a learning community that is, above all else, committed to people. Here at Darlington, our students are the center of all we do, and our days are spent empowering them to learn with passion, act with integrity, and serve with respect. This mission manifests itself in many ways - big and small, both inside and outside the classroom - as we prepare young people to lead successful lives in college and beyond. And the key to accomplishing our mission is our amazing faculty and staff, who support, challenge, and inspire our students to be their best every single day.
So you see, it is the people in the Darlington Community - our students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and friends - who make this school so special. We are a community of learners, both students and adults, who engage wholly in the school motto:
Wisdom More Than Knowledge
Service Beyond Self
Honor Above Everything
I invite you to explore our website and get your own feel for Darlington School and the people who make our community so special. I especially encourage you to check out our online photo galleries to see the exciting events that take place here on campus.
On our first visit to Darlington, it was the people here who made me and my family feel like this could be our home. They showed us what it means to be a Darlington Tiger and welcomed us with open arms. Now that we live here, we have no doubt that Darlington School was the right fit for us.
Once you have done a little bit of research online, I personally invite you to visit our campus and experience Darlington for yourself. It just might be the right fit for you, too!
