Our Commitment to You

As a college-prep school, we offer a broad program of rigorous academics, and we value hands-on learning outside the classroom

That's why Dunn students take part in community service, internships, global travel, student leadership, outdoor adventures, student entrepreneurship, and creative projects from songwriting to ceramics. It's  all designed to prepare you to lead a full and exciting life.

At Dunn, in every grade level and in everything we do, we commit to the well-rounded development of our students

We are each more than the sum of our academic work. It may seem like a contradiction, but at Dunn, we prize our individuality and our community alike. You simply won't find a teaching faculty more passionate about teaching their subject and also more invested in helping every student connect to their own talents and passions.

We live and learn by embracing shared core values of academic excellence, emotional wellness, physical readiness, social responsibility and moral courage.  And, we back up our commitment with:

  • Partnership with a trained and dedicated advisor
  • Low student-to-faculty ratio and class size
  • Structured daily study time
  • Learning strategies support
  • Abundant leadership opportunities    
  • Broad and deep athletics and arts programs
  • Thoughtful residential living curriculum
  • Dozens of enrichment activities and clubs

Your Commitment  

Coming to Dunn School is a big commitment for both the student and the student's family.  It is a commitment to the mission and core values of the school; a commitment to being a member of the Dunn community.  We commit to this partnership with a complete dedication of our time, talents and resources.  We hope that you are able and willing to do the same!
