Let this school know you found them on Boston magazine’s Find It Boston.

This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Dexter Southfield is an independent, college pre- paratory day school for young men and women in pre-K through class 12, located on a world-class campus just five miles from downtown Boston. At Dexter Southfield, students are provided a foundation for excellence and gain the character, confidence, and compassion to become leaders, lifelong learners, and engaged citizens prepared to achieve their personal best through every stage of life.
Dexter Southfield’s lower school (pre-K– class 5) is a warm and joyful environment where students develop a love for learning.
In the middle school (classes 6–8), students embrace new freedoms and responsibilities and are encouraged to take risks, test their limits, and make mistakes. Upper school students (classes 9–12) benefit from a versatile academic program responsive to the emerging challenges of a changing world.
