Dexter Southfield is a warm and welcoming community best highlighted through personal interactions.

A visit to Dexter Southfield is an essential part of the application process, and there is no better way to get to know our community than a personal campus tour. We know that a tour and interview are critical moments in time for your family as you get to know Dexter Southfield. Before booking an in-person or virtual tour and interview with us, it is important that you create a Ravenna account. Once you have created your Ravenna account, you will find our Bookings link under the Campus Visit/Student Interview application step (title of step may vary depending on apply year). We look forward to partnering with you as you journey towards discovering why your child's “better tomorrow” starts at Dexter Southfield.
