Last night, at our annual corporation meeting, the board of trustees rolled out the first mission statement in the school's history. The mission is the product of a robust and iterative process with community engagement at every turn. It is my honor and privilege to share it with you here.

Inspire and challenge.

At Belmont Day School, we foster intellectual curiosity, honor differences, and empower meaningful contribution with excellence, respect, honesty, responsibility, caring, and joy.
