Mission Statement

Belmont Day School was founded in 1927 by a group of parents committed to providing children with a strong academic foundation and many opportunities for creative expression. Today, as then, the school's program guides and challenges the intellectual, social, emotional, moral, artistic, and physical growth of each child. Belmont Day School strives to be a diverse community dedicated to academic excellence and intellectual discipline where students feel secure, experience the joys of learning, and know their accomplishments are valued.

At Belmont Day School we view education as a process by which children become self-motivated, life-long learners who take responsibility for themselves, each other, and the world around them. The curriculum is dynamic and rigorous and reflects an understanding of the many ways children develop and learn. In every grade, new concepts are introduced, reinforced, and mastered through a range of concrete experiences and opportunities that develop abstract reasoning. Teachers guide and instruct students individually and in small groups while providing time for students to learn from one another. The faculty pursues ongoing professional development, and regularly evaluates curriculum in light of the best in educational theory and practice.

The school and all its members commit to and practice six core values: respect, honesty, responsibility, caring, joy, and excellence. Faculty, students, parents, and administrators integrate these values into curricular choices, working relationships, community service, and all other aspects of school life. It is this vision of education that guides the school now and has characterized the school since its founding.
