letter to parents

Thank you for your interest in Boulder Country Day School. At BCD, we believe that students should be engaged through experiences offered in an atmosphere of encouragement, joy, and high expectations. We understand that children taught by energetic, inspiring, and creative teachers, who care deeply about each child's progress and development, are more likely to flourish. And, we recognize the importance of offering children the opportunity to thrive in a 21st Century learning environment where innovation, creativity, and critical thinking are front and center.

Selecting a school is one of the most important decisions you will ever face and you will want to consider all of your options to do that decision justice. With this in mind, I hope you will consider Boulder Country Day School. Our innovative academic curriculum in a caring and environment helps to develop well-rounded, well-prepared, and thoughtful students who have a decided advantage as they face the increasing challenges of life beyond 8th grade.

In this Admission section of our website, you will find our Inquiry Form, our Application for Admission, together with various forms to guide you through the admission process. To learn more, please join us for a school tour where you can see for yourself what an inspiring and wonderful community Boulder Country Day School truly is.

I look forward to meeting you!
