Buckley Country Day School

Founded in 1923, Buckley Country Day School is a co-educational independent day school serving 350 children in grades toddler through eight. Buckley is located on a 28-acre campus in the Village of North Hills. The founders’ vision was to create an independent school in the area modeled after some of the schools that their children attended in New York City. The school was designed as a rigorous learning institution to prepare students for entry into selective secondary schools. The school’s founders turned to B. Lord Buckley for advice; he was the founder and headmaster of The Buckley School in New York City.

The school’s mission is grounded in the belief expressed by B. Lord Buckley that "Opening the Eyes and Awakening the Mind" is the essence of education. Guided by that mission for almost a century, Buckley has purposely focused on developing a rigorous curriculum and teaching skills required for the students’ future.
