Boulder Country Day School

What does it mean to be a BCD student? BCD Students Are... Prepared.

Traditional College Prep... With a Contemporary Twist. “At BCD, it’s cool to be smart.”


“You’ll never find a better school that goes beyond academics to teach character development and organizational skills as well.”– BCD Parent



Boulder Country Day believes that an outstanding education should be available to all families. Our commitment and goal is to welcome and support a diverse group of qualified students, including those who would not otherwise be able to attend BCD.  Tuition assistance is available for qualified families. Applying for financial aid is not a factor when applying for admission. Interested families may contact the Business Manager or the Admission Office for more information.

The Martin Family has been involved with Boulder Country Day School since their daughter Laura began attending preschool in 1993.  She graduated in 2004 and now, after her college graduation, has joined BCD's Board of Trustees as our first alumni trustee.  While a student here, both of Laura's parents committed their time and means to supporting the school in various ways including facilities acquisition, marketing, board governance, and philanthropy.  In 2005 Scott and Janet Martin made a significant donation that enabled BCD to start the Martin Family Scholarship Fund.  They believe in the power of a BCD education and want to ensure that access to it is not deterred by a lack of financial means.  Today the Martin Family Scholarship is used to support families who meet BCD's admission criteria but who cannot cover the cost of attendance without additional support. 


The Shields Scholarship, named after our previous Head of School, Mike Shields and his wife Roie, was created to support a rising or current BCD Middle School student who has achieved academic excellence, a commitment to community service and has demonstrated financial need.
