Grades: PK-12 | 781 students
Darlington School, an independent, coeducational, college preparatory school, serves high school-aged boarding and day students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade.
There are obvious reasons: Darlington's proven track record in preparing students well for college, its serenely beautiful, 500-acre campus, its impressive facilities and wide array of academic, artistic, athletic, and social opportunities.
But more significant are the friendly spirit of the School and its long history of inspiring students to take full advantage of their God-given gifts and to grow intellectually, spiritually, morally, physically, culturally, and socially.
Darlington graduates men and women who exemplify the School's motto: Wisdom more than knowledge; service beyond self; honor above everything.
