Brooks alumni from the classes of 2013 to 2020 are invited to enjoy some complimentary cocktails and delicious food while catching up with old friends and classmates at Stats Bar & Grille in Southie (77 Dorchester Street, Boston, MA). RSVP and see who's coming, then kick off the holiday season with Brooks: We can't wait to see you all there! (This is a 21+ event).

Save the date: Brooks will be offering a holiday concert, featuring student musicians. Join us and get in the spirit!

Getting into the holiday spirit, students, teachers and staff are treated to a winter celebration of sweets and raffle prizes from 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 January 3 (boarding students return by 8 p.m.).
