Dana Hall is a day and boarding school with a global reach and strong local roots. This is who we are, and this is what makes Dana Hall special and vibrant. Founded in 1881, Dana Hall has a long history of educating students from around the world. Throughout the School’s long history of enrolling international students, our students have had the benefit of learning as much from each other as they do from their studies.
Dana Hall also accepts applications from the Gateway to Prep Schools application, as well as the Student Application Online (SAO). Applicants using the Gateway or SAO application do not need to complete the Ravenna application forms; however, applicants must create a Ravenna account, regardless of which application you use.
Please note: Applicants using the SAO should be certain to complete the Dana Hall supplemental form found on that application.
