Our educational philosophy

Berkshire Country Day School’s intentional approach of inquiry, discovery, and discussion blends proven methods with emerging best practices to draw fully on the experiences and contributions of our entire school community.
Our comprehensive curriculum, which includes project-based and experiential learning, leverages the talents of our exemplary educators and the natural resources of our extraordinary campus
to inspire independence, academic excellence, and mutual respect.

Berkshire Country Day is comprised of four academic divisions:

Early Learning

(Two, Three, Four-Year-Olds, and Kindergarten)

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, BCD’s program provides a nurturing and fun educational environment, while offering a child-centered curriculum to embrace each child’s learning style and developmental readiness. Children are encouraged to explore, play, take risks, listen, and find their voices in creative and expressive ways.

Lower School

(Grade 1 through Grade 5)

Through guided discovery and inquiry, students build a solid foundation in reading, writing, and mathematics, explore and better their understanding of the world around them through science and social studies, discover their creative talents through music and art, and grow as responsive and responsible citizens through our social curriculum, Responsive Classroom.

Middle School

(Grades 6, 7 & 8)

Students gain fundamental skills for successful learning: research, critical analysis, organization, listening, speaking, and writing across integrated curriculum areas. Faculty advisors monitor their advisee’s academic and personal progress, and counsel and advocate for their success.
