About Victoria “Tory” Dodge
My exposure to boarding school started at the young age of five when I attended a junior boarding school as a day student at Rumsey Hall School in Connecticut. It continued as a boarding student at The Mary C. Wheeler School in Providence where I attended high school. At my initial school interviews, I remember looking at the Admissions Director thinking that that would be a job I would really like to have! Little did I know that after I had finished my degree at the University of Denver and had been a Peace Corp Teacher/volunteer in Ethiopia that I would actually become one. It took a few years to get there as I started out as a teacher and houseparent at a junior boarding school. I progressed to the role of Admissions Director and eventually to the Co-Directorship of the school. My next moves were to the secondary school level where I was the Director of Admissions and then I became a marketing and admissions consultant. For ten years I worked with over sixty boarding schools traveling in the United States, Canada and Europe.
