Belmont Day School is an intimate school with an expansive vision.
The school provides deep and thoughtful academic preparation for elementary and middle school students within a secure, purposeful, and highly personal community.
It is a school where deep research leads to an independent project presented to the community, where students cultivate a garden to learn about sustainability, where an artist captains a varsity team, and where engineering problems are solved collaboratively in the woodshop.
Honesty, caring, joy, responsibility, respect, and excellence are the values that guide every decision and interaction.
Students leave Belmont Day School with a set of impressive skills, a strong sense of self, an appreciation of the wide and complicated world around them, an understanding of the possibilities and privileges of an effective community, an enthusiasm for learning, and a commitment to balance their own perspectives with those of others.
Belmont Day is a school where all voices speak big ideas, where children embrace compelling and uncommon challenges - and grow into independent learners.
