Welcome to Dwight Global Online School! As the premier choice for students who are traveling, pursuing their dreams as pre-professional athletes, ballet dancers, actors, and musicians — or enjoying the many benefits of learning online from home — Dwight Global offers all the benefits of a world-class independent school education combined with the flexibility online learning affords.
Since 1872, Dwight has been dedicated to igniting the spark of genius in every child. This mission is shared by all Dwight Schools worldwide – in New York, London, Seoul, Shanghai, Dubai – and extends to Dwight Global, our cloud campus. Our students are encouraged to pursue their passions or “sparks,” which excite and give them purpose; and no matter where they learn – in person or online – everyone receives the same personalized attention.
We are committed to being a school without limitations; in fact, Dwight Global is designed to eliminate the need for students to make binary choices that have historically dominated the educational landscape. We blend online, on-campus, and residential learning experiences from grades 6-12.
As no two students are alike, we customize the educational journey for each student. Whether pursuing the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program or combining Advanced Placement (AP), Honors, and Standard-level classes, Dwight Global students are encouraged to shape their Middle and Upper School experiences to align with their interests and aspirations. Our student body represents over 30 countries and our classrooms with seminar-style discussions are vibrant and dynamic.
We build on 150 years of Dwight's academic excellence with 30 years of innovation in online learning and continue to forge the way as the first online independent school created by independent school educators. Ranked the #2 best online high school in the U.S. by Newsweek, Dwight Global was one of two schools in the world selected by the IB to pilot the Diploma Program entirely online.
Our commitment to cultivating an engaged, inclusive community also sets us apart. There are so many different ways our students can get involved and have an impact through leadership opportunities, clubs, our House System, Spark Projects, and more. Residential experiences, such as our annual Orientation and STEAM Weekends, enable students to forge connections with each other and teachers in person at our flagship campus in New York City. They also have opportunities to join Dwight peers for cross-campus collaborations, including our annual global concert, as well as on trips to destinations worldwide.
We educate the next generation of global leaders who can thrive anywhere in the world – and invite your family to embark on an exciting journey with us!
