Academics

As the pace of change accelerates, education itself must change or it will lose touch with the world our children are inheriting.

Barrie School is committed to delivering a challenging curriculum informed by best practices in independent school education. Our learning environment supports all facets of a student’s experience, including his/her academic, social, athletic, and artistic development. The Barrie curriculum helps students to become thoughtful and engaged global citizens. 

Our low student-to-faculty ratio enhances the unique opportunities for students to grow and develop while helping to instill a lifelong love of learning. 

Starting with our premier Montessori program for children age 18-months through grade 5, students are engaged in an experiential approach to learning. At Barrie, we facilitate the change from Montessori to progressive education as students advance through the Middle and Upper Schools. Barrie’s Upper School prepares students for admission to and success at a wide range of colleges and universities.
