List Detail


After graduating from Dwight-Englewood School in 1996, Kavita Bafana has returned to the community as the Director of Upper School Admissions. Mrs. Bafana is very excited to work with prospective families going through the secondary school search and looks forward to sharing her unique personal experiences of attending middle and high school at D-E. 

To her, each student is unique and has the potential to grow intellectually, socially and personally if given the correct guidance, support and environment. The three things that drew her back to take this role are the committed faculty and staff, the value placed on the process of learning and lastly, the autonomy each student is given on building their education. Even though she has traveled extensively around the world and moved over 10 times in her life, she and her husband decided to return to Bergen County to raise their twin boys. She graduated Cum Laude from Columbia University with a B.A. in Art History and Economics followed by her Masters in Marketing at Northwestern University. Mrs. Bafana enjoys practicing yoga and teaching Indian Classical Dance and looks forward to publishing her second children’s book in 2018 on the City of the Jaipur. Mrs. Bafana can be reached at
