BCD has been providing in-person and distance learning programs since August 24, 2020. Learn More
At BCD, we believe that students should be engaged through experiences offered in an atmosphere of encouragement, joy and high expectations. We understand that children taught by inspiring and creative teachers, who care deeply about each child's progress and development, are more likely to flourish. And, we recognize the importance of offering children the opportunity to thrive in an environment where innovation, creativity, and critical thinking abound.
Since 1988, BCD has been commitment to helping each student discover his or her own excellence. Selecting a school is one of the most important decisions you will ever face and we hope you will consider Boulder Country Day School. Our innovative academic curriculum in a caring and character-building environment helps to develop well-informed, well-prepared and thoughtful students who have a decided advantage as they face the increasing challenges of life beyond 8th grade.
The BCD Learning Center
The Learning Center is staffed with five faculty members with backgrounds in intervention strategies, literacy, special education (gifted and learning disabilities), as well as certifications in particular modalities such as Orton-Gillingham, Fountas and Pinnell, and Lindamood-Bell, ADHD, among others. They work closely with students from K- 3rd grade to provide targeted literacy instruction.
Boulder Country Day School Reviews
I have one child in middle school and one in elementary school at BCD. They have very different personalities and learning styles. And yet, BCD helps them both to thrive.
I didn't think it was possible to care as much as the teachers and administrators do at BCD. They're thoughtful, kind, compassionate, and smart. There is a strong math, science, reading, and language presence throughout the campus. Our very young daughter can sing in French already!
Dropoffs are fun and easy. The hours are great. Super creative afterschool classes - I'm an especially big fan of the messy art and cooking! There’s a very simple-to-use meal delivery service for lunches. School parties foster the fun side of meeting other parents, weekly assemblies bring everyone together.
Switching to BCD was one of the best choices we've made. It affects our lives in a positive way every single day and is a truly a gem in Boulder.
Furthermore I was impressed by the atmosphere of each classroom environment pre-school through 8th grade. I was greeted by children in almost every grade during my walk around tour that offered their name and a short blurb about what they were focusing on in class.
Susan Boyl (Director of Admissions and Marketing) was kind, caring, professionals and genuine in her explanation and passion for children’s care and education.
I have witnessed the head of school (John Suitor) helping daily in car line and connecting with the children. He is friendly, caring, kind and exudes care and love for what he does and for BCD as a place where children feel safe and supported.
While I believe that every child does not fit every school model I do believe that BCD does everything it can to make every child reach their full potential.
