Welcome from the Middle School Head

Welcome to the middle school at Belmont Day! Here, you will find our students actively engaged in shaping and advancing their own development. Every day they immerse themselves in the exciting journey through their adolescent years. Their minds are in the moment, experiencing joy and doing hard work, with the long-term goal of preparing for high school and their futures as lifelong learners and leaders.

Middle school is all about trying things on. At Belmont Day, we encourage students to try on new pieces of their identity, whether it be in the classroom, on the sports field, through a new artistic endeavor, or any other of the many opportunities they enjoy in their school day. They feel safe to take those essential and calculated risks—intellectually, socially, and emotionally—that serve as the cornerstones of growing up. As they explore their interests, our core values—excellence, responsibility, honesty, caring, respect, and joy—guide everything they do, from daily interactions with one another, to defining their goals for the future.

Along this journey, Belmont Day students are supported and challenged by expert faculty who carefully consider the diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences of our students to inform curriculum and guide programming. Our program is designed to be student-centered, responsive, and aimed at developing the whole child. As they graduate, Belmont Day alumni take on high school both sturdy and inspired. They are equipped with excellent academic skills, plus the compassion, drive, and integrity to work to better the world around them.

Because words cannot do justice to the energy, focus, and accomplishment that are evident every day, we invite you to visit us and see it in action!
