Summary: At Dana Hall, students have the flexibility to partake in varied activities, to be multi-dimensional. It's not unusual to be a serious musician and edit the newspaper and volunteer in a literacy program. You can be a lacrosse player and work the lightboard for the spring musical. If you are not into team sports, you can take yoga or daytime fitness and work on your sculpture after class. You can make joyful noise with the Gospel Choir and use your idealism and management abilities to plan Earth Day. Whether you are accomplished or novice, you can enjoy our distinguished programs in horseback riding, music, and the arts. Somehow at Dana Hall even the most disparate pieces fit together.

Summary: Making art - on the stage or in the studio - is a powerful way of finding out about yourself and the world. Art is fascinating and exhilarating - and it is an integral part of your education at Dana Hall.
You may already see yourself as an artist, an actress, a musician, a dancer. Or you may be perfectly certain that you cannot draw or act or sing or dance. Whatever your past experience, our accomplished faculty will build your confidence and introduce you to ideas, materials and perspectives you have never explored before.
Likewise, Dana Hall's athletic program is an integral part of the school's curriculum, and, as such, it provides opportunities for instruction, participation, and growth.
