Thank you for your interest in Dana Hall School! Dana Hall has been a leader in all-girls education since 1881, and part of that legacy is our commitment to instilling young women with leadership skills, integrity, empathy and confidence and preparing them not only for college but, more importantly we think, to become difference-making citizens of the world. At Dana Hall, girls learn from one another, celebrate each other's successes and enrich our community in profound ways. 


Here in the Admission Office we are looking for girls who will lean in to our inspirational and supportive environment and who will embrace our school motto of Amor Caritas, which is Latin for love and caring. We are looking for girls who want to learn, who care about their education, and who put the effort in to achieve personal growth and fulfill social responsibility.

We invite you to come visit our beautiful campus. Located in Wellesley, Dana Hall’s campus offers our students easy access to the educational and cultural advantages of nearby Boston, along with the security and beauty of a suburban college town. It’s in this unique environment that our girls learn, lead and succeed. 

We are proud of our students for the courage, originality and leadership they exhibit each day. Watch our videos to see how our students express these qualities in unique and different ways.
