High School Placement

At Belmont Day students are nurtured and prepared to take the next step in their education with confidence and anticipation. The six values that have been pillars of students' experience here—honesty, caring, joy, responsibility, respect, and excellence—will be welcome values at their next schools. Belmont Day has an excellent record of placing students in schools well matched to their needs after they graduate. Beginning at the end of the seventh grade year, the director of high school placement guides students and families through the process of finding the right high school. The school prepares a handbook each year for students and parents to guide them through the high school placement process.

Graduates move on to day and boarding independent schools, faith-based schools, and local public high schools.

This year, we celebrate a banner placement season where our students saw the highest percentage of acceptances and the lowest percentage of denials in school history.
