BB&N Mission

BB&N is an academically excellent, diverse, and inclusive community where students develop into lifelong learners who lead with kindness, curiosity, and integrity. We prepare students to be responsible and open-minded as they engage with the world around them.

Our Core Values

We promote curiosity and critical thinking to inspire a lifelong love of learning.

We strive to be honest, conscientious, and accountable in our actions even when no one is watching.

We foster a culture of respect, well-being, and connection that values all individuals and empowers them to discover and be their authentic selves.

We strengthen our communities by recognizing our common humanity and treating ourselves and others with respect and compassion.

Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge that the Buckingham Browne & Nichols school is on the ancestral, unceded territory of the Massachusett people. In spite of the theft of their lands and the killings of their ancestors by Western settlers, the Massachusett people, descendants of the Great Sac’hem Chickataubut’s Band of Massachusett at Neponset, have survived and thrived. We invite you to join us in honoring their past, present, and future stewardship.
