Experience Bentley

At Bentley School, we take great pride in our warm, welcoming community.

Whether you’re interested in Kindergarten or ninth grade, we normally offer prospective families multiple opportunities to come to campus and get to know the Bentley program and community better.

While we are currently unable to invite you and your family to campus to observe our students and faculty in action, we invite you to take advantage of the various online opportunities to learn more about Bentley.

  • Open Houses

    Each fall, Bentley hosts two community-wide events for prospective families. This year, families can register to attend a Virtual Open House to hear directly from teachers, administrators, and students about the Bentley experience. Each session includes the opportunity to participate in exciting classroom demonstrations put on by our talented faculty. We encourage parents/guardians and their students to attend. 

    Open House dates for the 2021-2022 Admissions Season will be posted later in the spring.
    To receive alerts and register for future events, please create a profile in Ravenna (our online application and event registration system).
  • Curriculum Nights

    Bentley’s diverse curriculum supports the varied interests of each of our students. Each fall, department heads invite families to attend Curriculum Night sessions to learn about the scope and sequence of the K-12 academic program at Bentley and the courses that will be offered for the coming year. Hear about our dynamic courses, diverse art options, and advanced language and math classes your child will have the opportunity to experience.  

    Curriculum Night dates for the 2021-2022 Admissions Season will be posted later in the spring.
    To receive alerts and register for future events, please create a profile in Ravenna (our online application and event registration system).
  • Virtual Parent Tours

    At this time, Bentley is offering virtual tours for parents. (Due to current restrictions, the campus is closed to visitors.) Our virtual tours will help you get a feel for our educational spaces and you will have an opportunity to speak directly with a member of our Admissions Team.

    To schedule a tour, please contact the Admissions Office at
  • Student Shadows

    A Student Visit (sometimes referred to as a Shadow Visit) is a wonderful opportunity for prospective students to experience a “day in the life” of a Bentley student.

    Virtual visits: This year, applicant students are able to join current Bentley students online for a variety of activities and to learn more about the school.

    In-person visits: Students are greeted by their ambassador, a current student, who will be their campus guide for the day. Visits include a trip to two classes and an opportunity to enjoy lunch with the community. While not required, we highly recommend your student sign up so they can see for themselves all that Bentley has to offer.

    Shadow visits for the 2020-2021 academic year have concluded. For students interested in the 2021-2022 year, visits will begin in the fall.
