Alumnae  

 

“During our daughter’s time at Dexter Southfield, we saw her grow into a confident, poised, and engaged adolescent with a passion for learning. The support and mentorship she received from her teachers, advisors, and coaches was extraordinary. Always going the extra mile, they challenged and encouraged her, helping her to achieve her fullest potential. Her continued success in college and now as she begins her professional career is a result of all she gained from her Dexter Southfield experience. For these many reasons, we continue to financially support the School.”
