The BC Curriculum: Paving the Way for Student Success

Saltus is dedicated to ensuring that Saltus students, from Foundation through to graduation, have the best educational journey and a well-established path to success. In September of 2024, Saltus is poised to transition to the BC Curriculum.

Since 1888, Saltus Grammar School has earned a reputation as one of Bermuda’s most progressive private schools. Today, we know that student success extends far beyond the pages of textbooks. Students need to know themselves, understand the diverse perspectives of others, develop strong communication and collaboration skills, and apply their knowledge to find solutions to real-world problems. 

The BC Curriculum provides Saltus with an internationally recognised curriculum focused on developing foundational literacies, social and emotional competencies, and the future-ready skills that will equip our students to thrive in their post-secondary studies and beyond. 

Our graduates will also have the added assurance that Dogwood Diploma recipients are accepted to prestigious universities in the UK, Canada, the United States, and throughout the world.
