Bancroft upholds the highest standards of academic achievement, and we give students the tools and support they need to reach them. From PreK through senior year, Bancroft prepares students to meet the academic rigors they will face at each next step. Lower Schoolers develop a solid foundation for success in Middle School. Middle Schoolers emerge ready for the rigors of Upper School. And our graduates are fully prepared to perform well in the nation’s top colleges, often reporting that freshman year seemed “easier” than Bancroft’s Upper School.
Expert teachers and small class sizes ensure that every student engages with subject matter on a deep level. Project-based learning teaches students to think critically and grasp complex ideas. They recognize when they need extra help, and how to articulate their needs – skills that serve them well at Bancroft, in college, and beyond. Bancroft’s academic programs ensure that our students master subject matter fully and efficiently, and perform at a consistently high level.
