Dwight's IB Diploma candidates have a distinct advantage in the admissions process, as the IB is recognized as one of the world's most rigorous courses of study.

Three college counseling experts work with students. Chancellor Spahn, who has many years of experience in the field, assists and works with students as an ex-officio member of the team. Together, we help students identify the college that is the best fit based on their academic profiles, personal interests, and aspirations.

A Four-year Path to Success

We provide extensive information, guidance, and support starting in Grade 9 and continuing through all four years of upper school and beyond.
