The Outcomes of a BCD Education: What do Berkshire School, Miss Hall’s, Monument Mountain, Hotchkiss, Middlesex, Bard College at Simon’s Rock, Emma Willard, Albany Academy, Pittsfield High, Northfield Mount Hermon, Ethel Walker, Lenox High, Darrow, Putney, and many other secondary schools all have in common?

What do Berkshire School, Miss Hall’s, Monument Mountain, Hotchkiss, Middlesex, Bard College at Simon’s Rock, Emma Willard, Albany Academy, Pittsfield High, Northfield Mount Hermon, Ethel Walker, Lenox High, Darrow, Putney, and many other secondary schools all have in common?  They all want students from Berkshire Country Day School to enroll and contribute to the quality of their educational environment and community next year.

It is clear to me that the greatest evidence of our outcomes, and the source of our pride in Berkshire Country Day School, is found in our students.  Smart, engaged, capable, and prepared – each has met with success and achievement in the classroom, on our teams, in arts studios and ensembles, and as supportive and involved classmates.  As individuals, each has found their voice, approached learning and life with integrity, acquired the skill of being a self-advocate, and has a good understanding of who they are and what they want to pursue.  Because each of our students has experienced how they are a part of a larger group experience, each understands the value of community.  I am confident in everyone’s potential to flourish and meaningfully contribute to their next school environment.

And, this exciting information about NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) graduates just arrived, providing further data about the outcomes of a BCD education (BCD has been a NAIS member school for many years).  CLICK THE PICTURE BELOW for more information.

What are “independent” schools?  Independent schools are private, nonprofit schools that serve students in prekindergarten, elementary, middle and/or high school. These schools are governed by independent boards of trustees and each school has a unique mission and culture.
