Dexter Southfield Logo


Today’s Dexter Southfield, guided by the motto “Our Best Today, Better Tomorrow,” encourages creativity, innovation, and the pursuit of excellence through a well-rounded academic curriculum that includes strong arts and athletics programs. Intentional emphasis on character and integrity creates a community of students who are ready to lead with confidence and serve with compassion.

Our college-prep curriculum offers opportunities to pursue passions in many areas. We take advantage of our proximity to Boston by “expanding” our classrooms; some examples are our MFA partnership and MEDscience classes at Harvard Medical School.

Dexter Southfield brings boys and girls together on the same campus while they experience the benefits of single-sex education during the formative Pre-Kindergarten through Class 8 years. In the upper school, students progress to co-ed classes, activities, and extracurriculars that are strengthened by single-sex program features, such as Class 9 Ethics and advisory groups.

Let us show you what’s happening on campus. Attend an Open House or schedule a campus tour, meet our students and faculty, and ask questions. We are confident that at the end of this process you will understand all that sets Dexter Southfield apart.  

We look forward to meeting you.
