Our Mission

Extraordinary Opportunities

We believe life’s greatest achievement is to realize one’s best possible self. This mindset drives every decision we make, and it’s why we’ve earned an exemplary international reputation.

Student potential is nourished by a superior curriculum with the most extensive program offerings in Northeast Florida for grades Pre-K to 12. Students define their own measure of success through an abundance of extraordinary opportunities, as demonstrated by a long list of esteemed alumni that includes academic scholars, renowned artists and Olympic athletes.

Our beautiful, award-winning campuses are home to a vibrant, global community of contributors who celebrate all beliefs and cultures. And, our highly qualified, nationally recognized educators adhere to their own pledge of dedication to excellence and student life balance.

Safety is paramount in our quest toward what is possible. Students must feel safe in order to embrace their greatest selves. For this reason, students experience unsurpassed safety. Perhaps most important, everyone in the Bolles family commits to The Bolles Way and enlists in the Bolles Honor Code.

This is what we do. Prepare students for college and life. Students here experience better outcomes, more choices and greater possibilities.

Bolles. The place to thrive.

Honor Above All
I will maintain my self-respect and respect others.
I will not lie, cheat, steal or tolerate those who do.

A Diverse Community

The Bolles School fosters an intentionally inclusive and safe environment that values, affirms and celebrates the dignity and worth of all students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni.

We recognize and appreciate that diversity exists in our beliefs, skin color, racial background, heritage, nationality, traditions we observe, religions we practice, languages we speak, structure of our family, financial resources we possess, differing learning styles, our abilities and physical limitations, age, gender and sexuality.

We believe our differences help define us as individuals. Our commitment to learning to communicate and empathize with one another unites us as a school community. Through this deliberate practice we equip our graduates with the intellectual and moral clarity to thrive in an increasingly complex global society.
