From the Head of School
Welcome to our new Centennial website, which we hope allows you to reconnect with Belmont Hill in a new and exciting way. During my tenure here, I have come to appreciate all of the people and stories that give our school its unique sense of culture and identity. So many of those stories flow from a faculty tradition of knowing and caring for boys in transformational ways. As we navigate such complex times, it is my firm belief that the role of a boys school focused upon developing young men of character has never been more relevant or valuable than it is today.
From the moment I entered the Head of School search in 2018, energy for the Centennial in 2023 has felt omnipresent. The passion of our alumni body for this school and for each other is extraordinary. Thanks to our amazing Alumni Office, one thing we know for sure is that Belmont Hill School loves a great party. That said, our Centennial will be so much more than that for this community. This is a moment to reflect upon the story of a School that has evolved from a scrappy local idea in 1923 to one of the truly outstanding schools in the nation. That success has flowed from a relentless pursuit of a mission centered upon character within a culture of excellence. As much as the campus and the community have changed, the soul of Belmont Hill feels as timeless and unchanged as ever.
Our goal is that this website allows you to receive important updates about events and happenings on campus while reengaging with our incredible history. Whether it is through maps, videos, timelines, or pictures, this site leads towards one ultimate objective: having as many Belmont Hill community members here as we possibly can on Friday, October 13, 2023. As part of the celebration, we are also thrilled to be embarking on Belmont Hill’s most ambitious capital campaign to date. So, just as we look back and celebrate the outstanding people who have made this school possible, we also look forward to investing in the future of so many more Belmont Hill boys to come.
I am happy that you have decided to visit Belmont Hill once again virtually, but we can’t wait to see you in person soon. As always, thank you for all that you do to support our students.
