Boulder Country Day School

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

Accountability is increasingly becoming a lost value. At BCD our motto is “Respect Yourself, Respect Others, Take Responsibility for Your Actions.”


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



Dear Parents,
Thank you for your interest in Boulder Country Day School.  At BCD, we believe that students should be challenged through experiences offered in an atmosphere of encouragement, joy and high expectations.  We understand that children taught by energetic, 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 a 21st Century learning environment where innovation, creativity, and critical thinking are front and center.  

BCD is the only preschool-8th grade school in Colorado that is accredited or certified by the Association of CO Independent Schools, the CO Department of Education, the National Association of Independent Schools and the International Baccalaureate Foundation.  Since 1988, BCD holds firm in its commitment to helping each student discover their own excellence

Selecting a school is one of the most important decisions you will ever face and you will want to consider all of your options to do that decision justice. With this in mind, I hope you will consider Boulder Country Day School. Our challenging 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. 


In this Admission section of our website, you will find our Inquiry Form, our Application for Admission, together with various forms to guide you through the admissions process.  To learn more, please join us for a school tour where you can see for yourself what an inspiring and wonderful community Boulder Country Day School truly is.
