Middle & High School (4-12)

Visit Dalton

We are looking forward to meeting you!

Visiting a school is one of the best ways for you to learn if it is the right fit for you.

Because of this, a visit to Dalton is a required part of the admission process for all applicants to grades 6 and 9.  We have found it to be most convenient for our applicants that we offer one comprehensive visit to Dalton, which includes a tour of the school, a one-on-one student interview, an information session and discussion for the parents with our Director of Middle & High School Admissions, and even a class visit for high school applicants. We hope through this visit that you will get a thorough understanding of Dalton, through a variety of perspectives.

Please schedule this visit on Ravenna as soon as you have submitted your application.

Additional (optional) opportunities to visit Dalton

If you would like to have a quick introduction to Dalton to help you decide whether to apply this year, a general Information Session may be for you.  These brief (45-minute) sessions in September and October will give you the basics:

  • High School: Sept 18 (8:30am), Sept 24 (6:00pm), Sept 27 (8:30am), Oct 10 (6:00pm)
  • Middle School: Sept 26 (8:30am), Oct 7 (6:00pm)
Space for these sessions is limited and we ask that you only attend if you would like general information to help you to decide whether to apply.  Registration is available after Labor Day at www.ravenna-hub.com.


The visits listed below are additional, completely optional opportunities to visit the school, perhaps ahead of applying, to learn more about Dalton.
