Th Middle School curriculum is based on Form-based themes.

The Second Form theme is “What it means to become a man”, where students  evaluate literary, historical, and present-day people. The Third Form theme is “Leadership, Responsibility and the Future”, where students study environmental science focusing on three developing regions in the world.

The Upper School forms focus on freedom and responsibility and ultimately in the Sixth Form, Belmont Hill students are expected to model leadership where students serve as models for Middle School students.
