Life on Campus

Bentley Student Culture
Bentley students are fearless learners and inspired individuals. All divisions encourage respectful and kind treatment of others, emphasizing inclusion in activities and friendship. Our students take pride in old and new school traditions, and enjoy opportunities to show their Phoenix spirit together, whether it’s in weekly Town Hall meetings, drama productions, or athletic events.
Life on the Hiller Campus
Located on six acres in the beautiful Oakland Hills, Bentley offers a "home away from home" feeling while promoting excellence in teaching and learning for the youngest members of our community. Teachers encourage students to celebrate their successes, take risks, and learn from their failures. The many forms of diversity our families represent, including diversity of thought, creates new traditions in a culture of shared values including respect, excellence, and care.

Life at the Upper School Lafayette Campus

The pastoral nine-acre campus showcases a state of the art playing field with Athletic and Student Centers as the backdrop for four exciting and challenging years. Upper School students engage in numerous endeavors here, whether in the classroom, on the field, in the science labs, on stage, or in the Lab working on underwater ROV's. Each student is expected to both do their best academically and understand their role in the well-being of the community. Advising and college Counseling, which begin in ninth grade, guide students to develop an academic and co-curricular road map to prepare them for colleges and universities of their choice locally, nationally, and internationally.
