Beaver Country Day School

Chestnut Hill, MA 02467
Beaver is so much more than a school – we are at the forefront of education. We consistently look beyond tradition, and beyond our walls to learn from and partner with the best. Because of this we are able to present classic and innovative subject matter in a creative environment that yields real results.
Students use state of the art technology in everything that they do – not only as a tool for research and discovery, but also as platforms for expression, communication, and creativity.
We are partnering with the greatest innovators out there in order to adopt and apply the most effective teaching methodologies. We’ve partnered with IDEO, an award-winning human-centric design firm, to train all of our teachers on how to bring design thinking to the classroom, regardless of the subject. And together with MIT, we are the co-founding partners of the NuVu Studio program, where students receive innovation training provided by MIT scholars, based on the MIT studio model learning.
We are an active and welcoming community of students, teachers, parents, and alumni. We learn and grow from each other, enriching our own offerings and providing access to amazing opportunities. Being a part of the Beaver community is a special honor that is exciting and constantly inspiring.
Our partnership with the Hiatt Center’s civic engagement program inspires and enables students to create social change. Social justice curriculum and community building opportunities raise awareness of and involvement in social responsibility.
