Dollar Academy is recognised as one of the UK’s leading boarding and day schools. Offering a broad curriculum, exceptional teaching, first-class facilities and dedicated pastoral care, the school is committed to providing the best education possible for boys and girls aged five to 18. Pupils study the Scottish curriculum and benefit from the widest choice of Highers anywhere in Scotland. Expectations are high and children are challenged, inspired and supported as they pursue their academic ambitions. Each year, pupils achieve outstanding exam results and more than 95 per cent choose to continue their education at universities in the UK and around the world. The co-curricular side of life at Dollar gives every child the opportunity to discover and develop their strengths and talents beyond the classroom. Activities cater for all interests, from sports and the arts to academic clubs, the adventure that comes with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and Combined Cadet Force, and Dollar’s world championship-winning pipe band. Dollar provides a stimulating and friendly environment for learning, where children are happy and excel. This warmth of community makes boarding a home-from-home experience. As the school prepares to celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2018, it remains a popular choice for Scottish families.
