  • 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.
