Every BB&N graduation is a celebratory event, but none was possibly more jubilant than the one held for the Class of 2021 on June 11 on Nichols Field at the Upper School campus. Only a few months ago it was unclear whether an in-person graduation was even feasible, but with many COVID restrictions for Massachusetts lifted, the graduation ceremony took place "in real life," as students often like to say. The temperate, sunny day could not have been more perfect, or appreciated, by those in attendance.
I have always believed that the best schools do so much more than simply provide their students with enriching course content and stimulating programming. The best schools are also consciously designed in ways to stoke deeply seeded passions, to inspire a powerful desire for life-long learning, and to help forge vital relationships with people and with ideas and information. I believe that Buckingham Browne and Nichols is such a place and I invite you to come explore us further.
To me, the “Preparation” part of Prep Schools means that we as an institution are tasked with the goal of helping develop self-actualized young adults who will move through their world with confidence and with purpose. At BB&N, we believe that it is in the collaborative nature of the learning experience that the real growth in our youth is solidified, and therefore we do everything we can to emphasize and provide for positive and productive relationships between the students and the adults working on their behalf. Here we believe that school should be both challenging and invigorating, and it is the balanced combination of the two at BB&N that makes me excited to come to work every day. We would love for you to join us in the experience.
