From Buckingham Browne & Nichols School

BB&N admires the great lengths our students can reach pursuing a variety of interests, including the triumphs and stumbles along the way. We look forward to the process, not just the goal. It builds both strength and grace. As a result, our students possess a well-rounded dexterity, bring strong minds, an appreciation for culture, and an eye for the interesting in whatever they choose to do.

BB&N welcomes all families, where you uniquely belong. We share a common ground that drives us to envision how great our world could be and work together to make it so. From the early years through graduation, BB&N students learn that excellence means being well, doing well, and living well. And our Cambridge location contributes to our students’ well-rounded journey because it affects how we learn, who we meet, and what we experience.
