St. Anne's-Belfield School's 108th session includes record enrollment, with a total of 942 students across all four divisions. Nineteen nationalities are included in the student body, with 11 represented among the 83 boarding students who will call the Greenway Rise Campus home this year.
"It has been wonderful to have our entire boarding family back on campus," said Antxon Iturbe, director of Residential Life. "We've already enjoyed events like bowling, baking, and hiking, and every day there's more fun to come."
This year's boarding students join 322 day students for an Upper School total enrollment of 406, which translates to an average student/teacher ratio of 10:1. In the Learning Village, 248 students in Grades 5 – 8 enjoy an average student/teacher ratio of 8:1 while 202 Grades K – 4 students enjoy an average student/teacher ratio of 6:1. In the Pre-School, 86 students enjoy an average student/teacher ratio of 7:1.
"These ratios allow us to truly deliver on our promise to know every child well and support all of them in their individualized interests and goals," said Associate Head of School for Academics Beth Miller.
"This mission is evident in our student-centered instruction across divisions, and the programming we have embraced that allows students to follow their own interests and wonders, including FAB Lab in grades K through six, Quests in grades seven and eight, and Intensives and Senior Seminars in the Upper School."
In 2017 – 2018, 92 students are the children of alumni and 29% of students have self-reported as students of color. Approximately $7 million was awarded in financial aid to 41% of students.
