Bancroft Alma Mater – Modern
Lyrics revised by Sali Diakite ’14 and Sarah Whalen ’14

Sing praise to our alma mater
Show us how to share love anywhere
Seek out lessons: live to learn and teach
Foster friendships, no one out of reach

Joys we've known
Understanding we've been shown.
Bancroft how we crave a chance to
Show you that we know now,
Know how dreams come true
Wave high, wave high the colors
Celebrate each other
Grey and blue.

Sing praise to our alma mater
For the friendliness we do express
When it's time to leave these halls,
Bancroft guide us, wider service calls

(Repeat "Joys we've known...")

Bancroft Alma Mater – Traditional
Written by Dorothy Peckham

O Bancroft, all our love we bring to you 
whose name we sing, 
for lessons learned and friendships made,
for life's foundation laid.

For all the joys which we have known, 
the understanding we've been shown,
Alma Mater, we sing your praise, 
our guide in youthful days.

O Bancroft, when we leave these halls,
when wider service calls,
in thought we'll often linger here,
and Bancroft's name hold dear.

We thank you for the friendliness
which you have taught us to express.
Alma Mater, we sing your praise,
our guide in youthful days.
