Welcome to Dexter Southfield. We are eager for you to learn more about us, a family school like no other. With our classic education and commitment to character, we have stayed constant in our approach to teaching and learning. Over the years, we have grown into a Pre-Kindergarten through Class 12 college prep school, where brothers and sisters benefit from single-sex classrooms in one caring community. With individual attention and support, students build an educational and ethical foundation for life. They develop into well-rounded men and women of high moral character who lead with confidence, serve with compassion, and live by our motto, “Our Best Today, Better Tomorrow.”
In a warm and rich learning environment, we promote critical thinking and problem solving through our foundational curriculum; sportsmanship and teamwork through broad participation in athletics; and creativity and aesthetic appreciation through the fine and performing arts. With Latin, grammar, and public speaking, students learn to speak and write effectively. In all areas of their life at Dexter Southfield, our students strive for personal best, becoming responsible and thoughtful leaders who can make a difference in the world.
We hope that you enjoy what you find here, and we look forward to seeing you on campus.
Head of School
