Girls learning, leading, succeeding


Thank you for your interest in Dana Hall School, an independent boarding and day school for girls in grades 5-12 (boarding begins grade 9). 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 into 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. 

Watch our videos to see how our students express these qualities in unique and different ways and learn more about what it means to be part of our Middle School or Upper School.

    "In my Literature and Composition II class, we were given the assignment of writing an editorial about anything of interest. I decided to base my editorial on the status of gender equality in Thailand. As an international student from Thailand, this topic sparked a particular interest for me. Through this assignment, I have realized my passion for women empowerment, not only in the United States but through an international perspective, too."
