High School Placement

Belmont Day graduates go on to the high schools of their choosing, including day and boarding independent schools, faith-based schools, and local public schools.

Beginning at the end of seventh grade, representatives from various high schools visit Belmont Day and our students start to explore their options. In eighth grade we guide students to consider a variety of strong-fit schools, coach them on interviews, prepare them for essay writing, and help them develop compelling applications.

Our eighth graders are enthusiastic and active participants in this process. They feel the confidence that can only come from already being seen as a leader in their classrooms and community. The cumulative effect of their Belmont Day journey—encompassing academics, athletics, arts, community service and the Capstone project—is that they feel well-prepared and excited for the next challenge.

Meanwhile, we regularly hear from secondary schools how much they enjoy enrolling Belmont Day students. Our graduates are enthusiastic learners who contribute in classrooms and throughout the community. They often become athletic team captains, stand out in the arts, and serve as leaders of clubs and campus activities.
