Academic Excellence

We offer a rigorous and balanced education, keeping the best of traditional education while infusing emerging, in-demand skills. We equip students with essential academic habits and social-emotional skills, preparing them for the demands and challenges of college and life.

Learning By Doing

For more than 50 years, Dawson has provided an experiential, hands-on education because direct experience and reflection are a more effective way to learn and keep students engaged. From labs, class discussions, field trips, travel, service, and physical education, our experiential programs help students grow creatively, socially, intellectually, and build character.
