For nearly 25 years Boulder Country Day School has been at the forefront of education in the Boulder Valley. The hallmarks of our school - Community, Character, Academic Excellence, and Small Class Sizes - are the keys to our success and allow us to create an educational experience where children innovate, create, grow and thrive. We believe our children are our future, and, to that end, we offer a broad-based liberal arts education that focuses on developing lifelong learners and responsible global citizens. The Boulder Country Day challenge, Discover Your Excellence, recognizes that excellence is teachable, personal, and can be achieved in a variety of different disciplines - academic, athletic, community service, leadership, and more. We seek to provide just the right amount of nurture, structure, and latitude to live up to this challenge.

Ideal candidates for employment at BCD share our beliefs and, above all, love working with children. We look for evidence of these traits in a candidate’s education, work, and volunteer experience. We believe everything we do is curriculum, and, as a result, we consider all BCD employees important members of our community. We look for employees who have intellectual lives outside of their classrooms or work spaces, believe intelligence is teachable and achievable and not inborn, are data driven, and ask great questions both of our school and our students.

Boulder Country Day School celebrates, honors, and appreciates all forms of diversity in an environment of inclusivity. Individual differences are highly regarded, nurturing the human dignity of each member of our community.  Our intentional work to embrace and understand the value of diversity, equity, inclusivity, and social justice affords the freedom for all members of our school community to flourish as unique, confident, compassionate, and ethical individuals. We affirm all people regardless of their age, disabilities, culture, ethnic origin, nationality, race, religion, creed, family, marital status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, genetic information, military service or socioeconomic status.
