Bentley School is an independent coeducational college preparatory day school, grades K-12.
Bentley School inspires inquiry, academic excellence, personal achievement, and character by engaging students’ intellect and creativity, and by encouraging them to embrace values that enrich their community and the world.
Honor, character, dignity, compassion, and ethical responsibility are fundamental ideals in our community and in our approach to teaching and learning.
Our comprehensive and academically rigorous curriculum promotes a life long pursuit and love of learning; provides a range of challenging opportunities in academics, athletics and the arts; encourages balance in students’ individual interests and goals.
The support of intellectual inquiry is developed by encouraging students to explore their individual skills and talents and by provoking a willingness to articulate ideas and to engage critical thought.
We provide an environment that allows students to take risks and to confront challenges in creative and individual ways.
