Our Unique Vision

Dwight Global is not an “online school for the 21st century,” but a school for the future. It is committed, at its core, to being a school without limitations designed to eliminate the need to make binary choices (online/in person or day/boarding) that have historically dominated the educational landscape. Dwight Global embraces different instructional modalities — online, in-person, residential — and uses them to optimize learning for students. Dwight Global recognizes that there are limitations to pure online schools and does not try to force everything into an online framework. The goal is not being online. The goal is providing an unrivaled education for our students.
