Buckley students receive comprehensive liberal art and college preparatory experience, including requirements in the arts and participation in ethical education programs. Students must commit to growing academically and embracing challenges. Buckley’s core values include respect, kindness, honesty, loyalty, self-discipline, and self-reliance. These values are embedded in the curriculum and are the heart of the school community. The campus includes serene outdoor spaces and bright classrooms full of natural lighting. Art, multiculturalism, service learning, athletics, and STEAM all play crucial roles in helping Buckley students find joy in their education and in life.

A Word From Admissions

Whether learning to read, analyzing a first text, or presenting a paper in high school, Buckley calls on its students to develop confidence, courage, and perseverance. At our kindergarten through twelfth-grade school, we make learning exhilarating. In classrooms, on the playground, and at assemblies, as well as on the athletic field, on stage, or in an art studio, your child will take risks and ask questions that are fundamental to academic growth and deep, joyful learning. To see this for yourself, visit Buckley during one of our Open House events in the fall. We look forward to working with you this year.
