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


The first semester comes to a close with final exams. Testing will conclude December 13.

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

Hooray, Winter Term 2019 gets underway today! The intensive courses will run through January 19.

Students enjoy a long weekend off, through January 21, before second semester begins.

The long weekend break concludes this evening, as students prepare for the start of second semester tomorrow.

Save the date! Class of 2020 students and their parents are invited to Brooks' College Counseling Kickoff. The program features panel discussions with college admission officers, a presentation of Brooks School's 2019-2020 program, case studies and a Q&A session.

Save the date: Join Brooks School alumni, parents and friends to connect and re-connect at The University of Massachusetts Club (One Beacon Street, 32nd Floor, Boston, Mass.). Detailed information to follow!

Students and faculty depart for nearly three weeks, through March 25, to relax before finishing off the school year.

Spring Break ends as students and faculty return to campus.

Alumni in classes ending in a 4 or 9: Come back to campus to see Brooks in action while reliving old memories with good friends! Visit Alumni Weekend 2019 for more details.


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.
