Scire Desidero

I Desire to Know
Bentley’s longstanding motto “Scire Desidero – I Desire to Know,” is infused in the School’s curriculum. From Kindergarten through 12th grade, students begin the journey of knowing the world, to knowing each other, and ultimately, knowing themselves. Finding foundation through concrete knowledge, exploring creatively, and sharing in the joys of a vibrant and kind community, Bentley students cultivate a lifelong pursuit of learning. Through exciting coursework and the ability to chart their own path, every Bentley student develops a personal drive to understand the world around them.

Our Community

Of the School’s many values, we hold community at the center. The comprehensive Bentley experience is proudly made up of our student body, two campuses, and the infinite opportunities in between.
