Our campuses provide students with spaces appropriately suited for their learning and development. Each campus has a distinctive feel and remains quintessentially Bentley.
We welcome visitors to visit us through our many admissions programs offered throughout the fall. Note that we are unable to accommodate any visitors on a drop-in basis.
Please visit our Experience Bentley section for ways to visit us in person and virtually. All registered visitors may be required to show proof of up-to-date vaccinations against COVID-19 upon arrival.
To ensure that admissions notifications can be released as scheduled, applications should be submitted by the priority deadlines. Applications received after the deadline will be considered, and we will do our best to release as close to our notification release date.
Please contact the Admissions Office if you would like to apply after the admissions priority deadline, or if you would like more information about space availability outside of our common entry points (Kindergarten, 6th grade, or 9th grade).
Bentley School wants families to feel welcome and encouraged to contact us directly in order to receive important information and support while making enrollment decisions.
Also, to allow families the opportunity to make a decision unencumbered by continued outreach from schools, our consortia encourage us to refrain from hosting many events or contacting a family daily. Still, we invite admitted families to reach out to us with any last-minute questions they have about Bentley School.
No. We strive for our school to reflect the diversity of the larger community, and we are committed to enrolling students from various schools and backgrounds. Our accepted students represent many schools, including other independent, public, parochial, and international schools.
