The annual 100 Days until graduation, drop-in event is held to inform sixth-formers about what their connection to Brooks will be like as alumni. The Alumni Office also takes this opportunity to talk with students about what it means to donate to Brooks, and works toward 100 percent participation in the Class of 2023 Gift.

Students enjoy a Presidents Day break. (Boarders return by 8 p.m.)

Students and faculty depart for nearly three weeks, through March 27, to relax before finishing off the school year.

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

An exhibition of works by faculty, staff, parents/family members and alumni responding to the theme of hope - "Hope: Faculty and friends of the Robert Lehman Art Center Gallery" - opens today. The exhibit will be on display through May 1. To check it out, please visit the Visiting the Lehman page. All are welcome!

We live in a fractured and frayed world of extreme separation, division and othering. What are the bridges we need to build and practices we need to engage in to shift from a culture of breaking to a culture of belonging? How can we repair and re-weave the fabric of care and connection in our communities so that all life can flourish? Brooks students will enjoy a special day of building a beloved community that will feature exercises to connect the head and heart as we engage visual arts and music and each other in conversations across differences and community practice.

Accepted students are welcome to campus for the first of our April revisit days.
