Welcome to Middle School
Build a Bridge to the Future
The middle grades are the launching point of an adolescent’s personal and academic trajectory. Our focus on the development of both cognitive and non-cognitive skills in young adolescents positions our students for future success. Here middle school students feel confident to be themselves and stretch themselves. They take pride in knowing that younger students look up to them, and they are excited to explore opportunities for leadership, and observe how their actions make a difference. With each passing year, our middle schoolers expand their dreams, hone their abilities, and prepare to embark on a lifetime of realizing their potential.
For students who came to Belmont Day earlier, grades six through eight provide a culminating experience for their grammar school journey. Students joining us during the middle school years find friends quickly in our strong, welcoming community. By the end of eighth grade at Belmont Day, students know themselves better than they ever thought possible. They’re able to speak with confidence in front of an audience; to present their knowledge and opinions eloquently. They’re better able to lead, to collaborate, to express their own thoughts, and to listen to those of others. They are ready to seek out an ideal high school and are prepared and inspired to go on and make their ambitions a reality.
We welcome students and families from many cities and towns including Arlington, Cambridge, Medford, Lexington, Lincoln, Newton, Waltham, Watertown, Winchester, and Woburn. Contact us to learn more about our private middle school program.
Middle school students love the thrill of discovery at Belmont Day. Our curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary connections, with assignments that are challenging, purposeful, varied, and inspire bold questions and ideas.
Beyond the Classroom
Our comprehensive co-curricular programming offers a myriad of opportunities for personal growth and community bonding. The non-cognitive skills built in these arenas are vital for future success.
