Strong partnerships leading to success
Part of Dipont Education’s success is built on our ability to create strong partnerships with exceptional institutions and organizations.
From our international high school program partner schools to the esteemed collaborators on our independent school projects and enrichment program, partners are fundamental in our mission to deliver world-class international education.
Our partnerships are ever-evolving and we are always interested in developing new partnerships with like-minded organizations and institutions.
