Welcome! This website gives you many glimpses of important parts of Bement. As you explore the site, you’ll be introduced to features uniquely Bement: a challenging, varied curriculum; a mini-term that offers a school-wide study of a particular theme each year; a renowned fine arts program; multiple athletic options; what it means to be a boarder at Bement. You’ll gain a sense of the beauty found in one of our country’s oldest settled communities. You’ll likely come to understand things like Winter Fridays, ninth grader leadership, service learning in the Dominican Republic, and our French exchange program. What’s most important at Bement, however, is the community we strengthen each day. Few websites can capture that.
We hope you enjoy your visit to this website and that it provides you with the information you seek. Despite the wonders of technology, we also hope you'll call with your questions or visit us for the personal attention that has long been our trademark. Again, a warm welcome!
