Your Learning

Welcome to our learning laboratory

Discover the Bancroft Difference - The premier college preparatory PreK to 12 Independent Day School in Central Massachusetts. Our talented faculty use innovative teaching methods designed for active learning to meet students where they are academically, socially, and emotionally. We help students become the best versions of themselves.

Early Learning & Lower School

It’s a time of self-discovery, curiosity, imagination, and cultivating kindness. Lower School students learn one-on-one with faculty or in small cohorts, with lessons tailored to individual learning styles, levels of mastery, and interests.


The Middle School years are about acquiring new academic responsibilities, building confidence, and cultivating leadership skills that foster self-respect—and respect for others.

Upper School

Our liberal arts curriculum—combined with countless opportunities for scholarly, athletic, artistic, social, workplace, and global engagement—gives students the broad education they need to succeed in the world’s top colleges and beyond.
