Step-by-Step Secondary School Handbook

Berkshire Country Day School students graduate from BCD having been prepared academically, socially, and emotionally for their next educational journey. This journey often begins in one of the fine public high schools or private secondary schools in our community, or in a boarding school further from home.

Choosing the best match for your child is not easy, but our approach to secondary school counseling is designed to help parents and students make informed selections and inspired matches.

In the early fall, BCD holds a Secondary School Information Night and invites representatives from a wide range of secondary schools and area high schools to participate on an information panel. The Associate Head of School then meets with every Grade 9 family and student to help them identify schools that will serve them well as she guides them through the application process. BCD faculty write thorough and insightful letters of recommendation to secondary schools based on their years of association with their students, and are able to speak to their many strengths and areas of interest.
