Early Learning & Lower School

The Early Learning years are a critical time for developing a strong foundation for curiosity, imagination, and love of learning in our young students. In PreK, our students do more than read The Three Billy Goats Gruff - they utilize the design principles they learn from our STEM classes to build a bridge strong enough to hold three goats.

Middle School

Middle School may only span three years of the Bancroft experience, yet it marks a pivotal time in the development of our young learners. Middle Schoolers build essential skills, such as teamwork, critical thinking, and presentation skills, while developing an understanding of their independence a mutual respect for others.

Upper School prepares curious learners for the full range of intellectual, ethical, personal, and professional challenges ahead. Our rigorous liberal arts curriculum—combined with countless co-curricular and real-world opportunities—provides the foundation for students to succeed in college and beyond.

Hope Graham Program

The Hope Graham Program (HPG) inspires students with language-based learning differences to help unlock their brilliance. HPG students experience collaboration across all grade levels and enjoy access to the richness and depth of Bancroft’s curriculum and co-curriculars.

Academic Support

Each of our three schools—Lower, Middle, and Upper—offers proactive academic support programs to maximize the academic and social potential of each student. Our academic support coordinators work one-on-one with students to develop learning skills, such as reading comprehension, test-taking preparation, and time management.

We believe that remarkable progress is made when everyone comes together—including academic support coordinators, teachers, administrators, and parents—to design and implement an action plan that best meets the needs of each individual learner.
