Welcome to Admissions

At The Dalton School, the primary focus is to nurture children's natural inquisitiveness, develop their self-confidence in their intelligence and in their ability to succeed, and teach them to be responsible and independent learners and thinkers.
The school seeks to enroll students of sound character and educational promise who will provide a diverse population in talent, background, and experience. Dalton is looking for students with strong academic potential who will benefit from the school's unique educational philosophy through the methodology of the Dalton Plan. A rigorous and challenging curriculum combined with a dedicated faculty, enables each individual student's abilities and potential to be maximized while encouraging the young person to contribute his or her imagination, curiosity and special interests to the entire Dalton community.
