Dana Hall School is unlike any other learning environment a girl will ever experience. We’re a school where students tackle demanding coursework and high academic expectations with joy, enthusiasm, and genuine curiosity. A place where girls take the lead in every classroom, on every stage, and on every sports field. We cultivate an environment in which students feel free to discover, become, and express exactly who they are.

At Dana Hall, we believe that academic excellence is best realized in girls whose social and emotional needs are equally considered with their intellect. Here, girls have a rare opportunity to explore—fully and without reserve—every aspect of who they are. Their true interests, nascent talents, bold ambitions, and leadership qualities. What ignites their curiosity, moves their hearts, and gives them purpose. Since 1881, our students’ undeniable success—at Dana Hall, in college, and in the world—has borne out the wisdom of our educational philosophy.
