Welcome to The Buckley School

We appreciate your interest in the Buckley School. This past year, we were able to offer in-person learning for every boy, every day, and we are proud of the way our faculty, staff, students, and parent community supported each other in this effort. In adhering to health and safety guidelines, our admissions process will be entirely virtual this fall. We will make every effort to get to know you and your son through a virtual experience and by working closely with your son's current school. Virtual tours and open houses, as well as conversations with current families, will allow you to get to know Buckley and the education it offers. 

The Buckley School understands boys—how they learn, think, work, and relate to others. Warm and nurturing, Buckley’s dedicated faculty inspire their students from Beginners (kindergarten) through ninth grade to delve into a culturally rich and well-rounded education and to embark upon a lifelong pursuit of learning. At Buckley we understand that boys love to be challenged, and we take pride in our curriculum, designed to spark boys' curiosity, hone their critical thinking skills, and allow them to partake in everything our school has to offer. Buckley boys learn world languages, take center stage during performances, write for the literary magazine, sing in the Glee Club, become members of Science Olympiad, and play a variety of sports. Our focus is on both intellectual growth and social-emotional development, and we are committed to the exciting task of teaching to the “whole boy.”
Buckley's approach to education is anchored in active, hands-on learning and a responsive classroom model, inviting students to explore the city around them, collaborate, take risks, and have fun. Buckley provides endless opportunities for boys to thrive in the areas of academics, the arts, athletics, and extracurricular activities and asks only that boys learn, play, and create with heart.

Buckley's community is diverse and vibrant, emphasizing friendship, service, citizenship and leadership. Buckley is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We strive for all students and their families to experience a meaningful sense of belonging.  We welcome and encourage family participation in school events and initiatives.
