Board of Trustees

Berkshire Country Day School’s Board of Trustees is composed of current and past parents, alumni, and faculty. The Trustees serve as the guardians of the School’s mission, are responsible for ensuring that the mission is relevant and vital to the community that BCD serves, and monitor the success of fulfilling the mission. To this aim, the Board takes the lead in strategic planning efforts and stewarding the School’s resources – financial and otherwise.

Dear BCD Community and Visitors,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I welcome you to our community. For those who know our school, you know what sets it apart: its insistence on kindness, its emphasis on learning, and its celebration of the natural beauty of the campus and the region.

As a trustee and current parent, I am fortunate to be part of this tight-knit community of truly remarkable teachers, dedicated administrators and staff, and families and fellow Board members. We are all share a deep commitment to the school. My two sons have received a tremendous education and will forever feel connected to this school.

BCD is a school both steeped in tradition and forward looking. As such, we welcome our new head of school Jenifer Fox, a national education thought-leader with over twenty years leading schools. Jenifer is committed to preserving the best of BCD while helping the school envision a future that welcomes new communities and prepares students for 21st century challenges and opportunities.

If you are a current family, thank you for building our community. If you are a current staff member or teacher, thank you deeply for what you give our children. And if you are prospective family, I urge you to reach out and visit. BCD is a rare gem – a kind and joyful community with remarkable outcomes for its students.

Best,

Stephanie Buchanan, President
