Dexter Southfield Logo


On behalf of the entire community, welcome! We are delighted that you have chosen to explore a Dexter Southfield education. Our School 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. Our upper school offers the best of both worlds with many of our elective classes being co-ed, and preparing students for college and beyond. 

Dexter Southfield offers a classic education grounded in the belief that a strong foundation is the springboard that guides our students to lead with confidence and serve with compassion. Our program – guided by the School’s motto, “Our Best Today, Better Tomorrow” – is a powerful formula that prepares students to make a difference in the world they will share.

Let us show you what we have to offer.​​

We invite you to experience Dexter Southfield for yourself. Attend an Open House or schedule a campus tour, meet our students and faculty, and ask questions. It is a big decision, and we are confident that at the end of this process you will understand what sets Dexter Southfield apart.  

We look forward to meeting you.
