Dublin School
"No two Dublin educations are the same.
We couple the power of a classic college preparatory education with the ability and flexibility to dive deeper into a newly discovered passion.

We require rigorous and extensive course work in English, Mathematics, Science, History, a World Language, Technology and the Arts. But this is just the foundation. The excitement for our students is in being able to take their ideas and passions further.

For some that is in investing themselves heavily in AP Course work in the Sciences or Humanities. For others it is maximizing self-expression through both the Visual and Performing Arts. Others delve deeply into Technology and Robotics. They are fully supported through student requested electives, independent studies and a capstone Senior Project that offers students the opportunity to engage in a year-long rigorous study centered-around a question or topic that is of special interest to them.

But what if I don't have an academic passion right now?

We don't expect you to. We would rather see you be open to the possibilities than to have it all figured out. Nothing is more empowering to us as educators than when a student discovers that they really are passionate about something unexpected. At Dublin, that happens more times than not."
