At Brooks School, we seek to provide the most meaningful educational experience our students will have in their lives.


After a week off, Thanksgiving Break wraps up today. Classes resume tomorrow, December 1 in a virtual mode for all students.

We will finish the first semester with virtual classes for all students beginning today and finishing on December 10.

Prospective families are invited to meet virtually with current students, who will talk about different aspects of their time at Brooks, during this Zoom event. When students finish speaking, there will be a time for families to ask questions. Please RSVP to admission@brooksschool.org and we will send you a link to the event. For details about other upcoming admission events, please see our Virtual Visit page.

All current students and employees are invited to Brooks' monthly Community Conversation. Facilitated by the school's Equity and Inclusion Prefects, this virtual gathering will address a range of topics. We look forward to meeting with you!

Winter Term

Winter Term is an intense, three-week, one-topic course of study held each January. Puttting into practice the concept of “depth over breadth,” the single-course structure of Winter Term allows students and faculty to work together even more closely than they do in regular classes.
