Discover Belmont Day

A Community of Inspiring, Bold, Remarkable Learners and Leaders

Our students truly love learning. They take pride in challenging themselves. They understand that excellent process makes excellent product.

Almost every Belmont Day student can tell you that our six core values are excellence, honesty, respect, caring, responsibility, and joy. When you visit our beautiful 11-acre campus, just 15 minutes from Boston, you’ll see how we live out these values in a vibrant, inclusive educational community. Our talented teachers love their jobs and inspire their students. Every foundational skill we teach is accompanied by a rich, interdisciplinary experience that allows students to relish learning and connect their ideas to the broader world.  

Belmont Day is small enough that students are well-known as individuals, but big enough that they have many choices and opportunities. Our students feel comfortable being themselves and taking healthy risks in the classroom and throughout our community. As a result, when Belmont Day students build the basic skills of self-advocacy and leadership they will use in high school, college, and for the rest of their lives.

Come take a look. You will quickly recognize what a magical place this is.
