Darlington School is an accredited, college-preparatory, coeducational, day (Grades PreK-12) and boarding (Grades 9-12) school. Darlington School is located in Rome GA, just 70 miles from Atlanta, and offers a curriculum that is global in focus and personal in delivery.
Co-ed Day & Boarding School Programs:
- Day Programs (Pre-K-12th Grade)
- Boarding Programs (Grades 9-12)
Students are required to take a formal English class each year at Darlington. The four units of English consist of English I-IV. Students may be enrolled in the regular or Honors section at each level, and Advanced Placement English may be substituted for English III in the junior year and for English IV in the senior year.
Juniors and seniors choose one of several elective classes to fulfill the English III and English IV requirements. All classes will be year-long, and will have a similar grading scale, reading load, and writing requirements.
Students are required to take three mathematics courses in high school. The required units include Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. If Algebra I is taken in the eighth grade, then a course beyond Algebra II is required.
All students are strongly advised to take at least four math courses in high school. If a student plans to enter the university system of Georgia, four years of high school math, with one course more advanced than Algebra II, are required; students without a course beyond Algebra II will not be eligible to receive the HOPE Scholarship.
Three science courses are required for graduation, one of which must be Chemistry, Physics, or Biology. At least one unit of science must be completed at Darlington.
Students are required to take two courses in world history and one course in American history to fulfill the required social studies units.
Every freshman is required to take a full year of Wellness.
Information Technology & Communications:
Each student must take one unit for graduation. Graphic Design; Introduction to Computers, Networking, and Software; A+ Certification; Yearbook Production and Video Production are one-year courses. Some of the trimester courses may be taken more than once.
Three consecutive units in a world language are required for graduation. Passing the equivalent of the first or second level of world language in the Middle School satisfies the first unit of this requirement. The subsequent two units must be completed in Upper School.
For example, if Spanish I is passed in the eighth grade, the student must still pass Spanish II (or IIH) and Spanish III (or IIIH) in the Upper School before graduation requirement has been met. All students are encouraged to pursue more units in order to become more proficient and to have greater college options.
Each student must take one unit for graduation. Art I, II, and III, Ladies’ and Men’s Chorale, Concert Choir, Creative Writing, AP Art History, and AP Music Theory are one-year courses. Cinema, Music Appreciation, and Musical Theater are one trimester in length and make up one-third credit each. Some of the trimester courses may be taken more than once.
Advanced Placement Courses:
Darlington’s Advanced Placement courses provide opportunities for advanced specialized coursework and college credit. A score of 3 or higher (out of a possible 5) often means the student is eligible to receive college credit or waive required college courses in the subject covered by the AP exam.
- Darlington sophomores take AP World History, AP Chemistry and AP Languages; juniors take AP English Language, AP Sciences, AP U.S. History, AP Spanish or AP Calculus. Seniors may choose from offerings including AP Statistics, AP Calculus, AP Art History, AP Economics, AP English Literature, or AP Music Theory.
