Buckley Country Day School is an independent, coeducational day school providing a superior elementary education to an intellectually capable and diverse student body. Buckley provides the foundation that enables our students to achieve their full potential and excel as educated, ethical, and self-confident individuals. Our graduates are well prepared for entry into, and success in, secondary schools and beyond.


Buckley is committed to providing a rigorous, classical education that focuses on scholastic achievement. Emphasis is placed on core skills in reading, writing, and mathematics, using a broad repertoire of teaching techniques and technologies. These skills are enhanced by their integration throughout the curriculum. Our faculty creates experiences that foster critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration.

Buckley’s educational philosophy is centered on intellectual, physical, and artistic development. Buckley’s size and low student-teacher ratio enable our exceptional faculty to maximize individual attention. Our nurturing, family-oriented environment brings out the joy of learning in each child.

“Opening the eyes and awakening the mind. . . that is the essence of education.”
