We want you to have time to get to know Bement’s community and programs first hand. Nestled in the heart of one of New England's most renowned historic villages, Bement offers a modern education in a colonial American setting. The beautiful street provides students with cultural opportunities and a warm sense of place. The school is located just minutes off of Route 91 connecting Connecticut to Vermont. Our day students come from the surrounding communities such as Amherst, Northampton, Deerfield, Longmeadow, Greenfield, Conway, Northfield, Springfield, and Sunderland as well as towns in southern New Hampshire and Vermont. We are centrally located and easily accessible from many local communities. Transportation is available throughout the valley.
We are excited to welcome visitors to campus. An interview or screening is a required part of the application process. The Admission Office plans to conduct interviews with prospective students and families in person. On campus interviews are scheduled at 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 1:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Fridays. However, we understand that travel to campus is not possible for all. The Admission Office will continue to also hold virtual interviews when necessary.
We invite you to take a virtual tour of our campus by clicking the links below. We hope that you can see for yourself what makes Bement special.
Please call 413-774-4209 or email us at email@example.com with any questions, or to schedule a visit to campus or Zoom interview.
