Darlington School is an American private, coeducational, college-preparatory day and boarding school in Rome, Georgia. The school serves students from pre-kindergarten to grade 12, divided into a lower, middle and upper school. Darlington is currently represented by 38 countries. The headmaster is Brent Bell[4] and the head of the Upper School is Matthew Peer.[5]

Founded in 1905 by John Paul and Alice Allgood Cooper, Darlington School was named in honor of a teacher by his former students. Joseph James Darlington taught at the J. M. Proctor School for Boys in Rome, Georgia.

The school uses an English-style House system in the upper school. Each house is led by a Head of House faculty member and a Resident and Day Student prefect. Boys Houses include Summerbell House (Freshman), Moser House, and Neville House. Girls Houses include Cooper House (Freshman), Regester House, and Thornwood House.

The school participates in Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning (GOAL), a Georgia program which offers a state income tax credit to donors of scholarships to private schools.[6]
