a community of inspiring,
bold, and remarkable
learners and leaders.

At Belmont Day School, our students truly love learning. We nurture this every day through hands-on, interdisciplinary work that grounds the academic experience in the real world. Our faculty are experts at offering each individual the right level of challenge and support. As a result, our students build a strong sense of themselves and embody our core values of excellence, responsibility, caring, honesty, respect, and joy. Our eighth grade graduates go on to the high schools of their choosing, where they are embraced as confident self-advocates and leaders in their new school communities.
