At Buckley, we believe that high school students should become accomplished generalists before beginning to specialize in college. Our 4-Fold Plan educational philosophy and college preparatory curriculum ensure that all of our graduates receive a well-rounded, liberal arts education. The program incorporates 21st century learning principles, from globalism and innovative problem solving to integrated technology and media literacy. And our small school size makes participation in numerous extracurricular opportunities possible. While many of our students have a specialty or passion - be it in the arts, athletics, or sciences - they all truly engage in each aspect of the 4-Fold Plan.
We also believe that learning to think critically and creatively is paramount to students' development and education, as is strength of character. Human values are embedded in every discipline of our curriculum and are given primacy through vehicles such as "The Buckley Commitment." This emphasis on ethics and moral education is woven into Buckley's culture as we believe that schools should not only prepare our students for success in college, but should also help them develop personal responsibility and leadership skills.
Thank you for visiting our school website and I hope you will plan a visit to our vibrant campus soon. It would be a pleasure to welcome you to our community and show you in person why we are so excited about the unique learning environment at Buckley.
