At Belmont Hill, we value inquiry-based learning. From our boys’ formative time in the Middle School up through their Form VI year, we engage them in solving complex problems that require teamwork and deep research. Whether it be using information about mass and density to discern the contents of a pile of sludge in Form II or designing a question that forms the basis of a fifteen-page argumentative research paper in Form V, our boys are continually building their analytical and investigative skill set.
Belmont Hill’s Collaborative Programs offer our Form V and Form VI students the opportunity to build on the skills they have acquired in their traditional coursework and apply these skills to solve real-world problems. Our Advanced Action Research course teaches passionate humanities students how to conduct and leverage qualitative research to improve their community. In Advanced Science Research, our boys gain invaluable experience putting the lab skills they have acquired at Belmont Hill to work as research assistants in local labs. Finally, in our Biomedical Engineering course, a team of five Belmont Hill students enroll in and work together to navigate the demands of one of Johns Hopkins' most challenging undergraduate classes.
Ultimately, each of these selective programs provides our boys with incredible opportunities to explore content areas that they are passionate about and to grow as learners, thinkers, and doers.
