A school for children who love to learn

First and foremost, Belmont Day School students love to learn. Every day they engage with an eager curiosity and a genuine desire to create work that is substantive and meaningful. With each passing grade, they grow more in their sense of identity, their self-advocacy, and their ability to take on challenges. We offer a rich academic program with diverse athletic and artistic experiences woven into each day. A wealth of in-depth projects and leadership opportunities inspire students to apply their knowledge and critical thinking skills.

We help students become leaders

Belmont Day School graduates student leaders who are prepared for their next steps, but the first step towards that end is the one that you take. Whether you are just beginning to explore school options for your preschooler, or have an older student who is curious, capable, and just begging for more out of school, you can move forward by reading about our engaging curriculum and getting to know our talented faculty. Then contact us for more information.  

We encourage you to reach out and use us as resources in your school search. We are eager to demystify the independent school admission process and provide clarity as you assess school fit. We are here to answer your questions (big and small) and are excited to partner with you and get to know your student.
