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


Come rock out in the Black Box Theater! All are welcome to the one-night-only event featuring performances from Brooks' Rock Band and Advanced Rock Band. Both groups have been working hard all term to be able to present their full setlists to you. Audience members will hear some Ramones, Rolling Stones, ACDC, Amy Winehouse, Nirvana and more. Come support our student musicians! Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first served basis.

Join us for our annual Winter Concert! There will be performances by the Jazz Band, Advanced Jazz Band, Chorus and Chamber Orchestra, plus a big combined holiday-themed number at the end featuring all these groups plus our two rock bands. The concert will last about an hour and is open to all members of the extended Brooks community. You don't want to miss it!

Getting into the holiday spirit, students, teachers and staff are treated to a winter celebration of sweets and raffle prizes by our generous parents!

The school community will ring in the holiday season at our annual event in the Chapel. Students and faculty offer readings as well as sing and play festive carols. The service - which originated in the King's College Chapel - symbolizes humanity's universal longing for peace. Following the service students will enjoy a dance and holiday festivities!

After a week of exams, students leave for winter break and some much-deserved time off. The vacation concludes on January 2 (boarding students return by 8 p.m.).

Winter Break concludes as boarding students and faculty return to campus.

Students enjoy a long weekend off, through January 23 (boarders return by 8 p.m.), before the second semester begins.

Students wrap up a long weekend off (boarders return tonight by 8 p.m.) before the second semester begins.

A sweet tradition: Students enjoy a buffet of holiday goodies during lunch courtesy of Brooks' parents.


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.
