Secondary School. We recognize that boys will change throughout their nine or ten years at Buckley and that they will need guidance and support in order find the right secondary school for the student they have become. As a result, we take secondary school placement seriously, advising our Class VIII and Class IX families throughout the process. As a former director of admission, Headmaster Greg O’Melia plays an active role in overseeing the process and advocating for our boys, along with the director of placement and the director of the Upper School. Buckley boys are consistently admitted to a wide range of boarding and day high schools, including Andover, Bronx Science, Choate, Collegiate, Deerfield, Friends Seminary, Grace Church, Groton, Exeter, Horace Mann, Hotchkiss, Lawrenceville, Milton, Packer Collegiate, Regis, Riverdale, St. Paul's, Stuyvesant, Taft, Trinity, and Westminster.
