Visit Bement

While an interview or screening is a required part of our application process, 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.

While campus is currently closed to visitors, 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 admit@bement.org with any questions, or to schedule a Zoom meeting.
