DCD Students Have Many Options for Secondary School

Our Secondary School Counseling Program ensures that the next step in each student’s educational journey is with a school that matches his or her individual academic skills, needs, and extracurricular interests.

DCD eighth graders often have many options when choosing their next school. While many students receive acceptances to and matriculate in the top day and boarding schools in New England, some students do choose to attend the public high schools in their towns. Below is a list of schools where you’ll find many of our DCD graduates.
