  • Enrollment Process

    Enrollment contracts for newly admitted students are available in DanaConnect, the School's online platform for parent and student information and resources. When you are ready to enroll your daughter at Dana Hall, please follow the below instructions. Please note that the enrollment process should be completed by parents/guardians.

    To complete the enrollment process at Dana Hall:

    Step 1: 
    Create your DanaConnect password. Your username is the parent/guardian email address that the School has on file for you in Ravenna. Also, please note that the enrollment process can only be completed with a parent user account. Enter the parent/guardian email address, check “Password”, and select “Send.” You will then receive an email with detailed instructions for creating your DanaConnect password.

    If you already have a DanaConnect account as a Dana alumna, parent, or faculty member, use your existing DanaConnect credentials to log in.

    When accessing DanaConnect from Dana Hall's main website, click on "Need Login Assistance" if creating your password for the first time or if you are a returning user and don't know/remember your password.
    Step 2: 
    Log in to DanaConnect.
    Step 3: 
    In the Resources section of DanaConnect, select "Student Billing/Financial Statements (My BackPack)."
    Step 4: 
    In Student Billing, select "Enrollment/Re-enrollment" to access your contract. Once you gain access to the enrollment contract, complete the form, sign it electronically, and press the green submit button.
    Step 5: 
    Once you have submitted your contract, you will be directed to the payment page where you can choose to pay via e-check or wire transfer. You may also send a paper check. Please note your enrollment is not considered complete until the contract and non-refundable deposit are both received.

    Once Dana Hall receives the signed enrollment contract and non-refundable deposit, we will send you a confirmation email.

    "Dana offers many great opportunities including a trip to South Africa every other year. I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d be visiting South Africa, let alone with some of my closest friends. The trip enabled us to interact with real South Africans as they experienced their real lives, an opportunity I could never have had as a tourist."
