Brooks welcomes a guest speaker to the annual Chapel service that remembers the late Katherine (Kippy) Liddle and honors outstanding achievements, accomplishments and the character of female athletes at Brooks. The Brooks community gathers each year to pay tribute to Liddle, a Brooks history teacher, assistant crew coach and dorm parent who died while protecting the life of a student during a boating accident in 1984.

Please join us for this annual dinner, where parents and faculty connect and reconnect. Café Azteca is located at 180 Common Street in Lawrence, MA. We look forward to seeing you!

Motivational speaker Travis Roy, who was paralyzed during a college hockey game accident, will share with students his inspiring story of surviving spinal cord injury, living as a quadriplegic and becoming a disability advocate. Roy is the author of "Eleven Seconds: A Story of Tragedy, Courage & Triumph."

Brooks School will celebrate the scholastic achievement of students welcomed into the Cum Laude Society with a short ceremony including an address and awarding of the certificates.

Founded in 1906, the Cum Laude Society is dedicated to honoring scholastic achievement in secondary schools. The founders of the society modeled Cum Laude after Phi Beta Kappa. In the years since its founding, Cum Laude has grown to 382 chapters across the United States and internationally. Some 4,000 new student members are inducted annually.

Students welcome their grandparents and special friends to campus for a morning of events. Highlights include classes with grandchildren, family photos, lunch in Wilder Dining Hall and a reception at the Head of School's house. Visit our event page to RSVP and see all the details.

Brooks School invites current 7th graders and their families to get a head start on the application process in our Admission Workshop. Participants will enjoy an admission presentation about the application process, admission interviews and SSAT preparation, as well as a student discussion panel and campus tour.

Fifth- and sixth-form students and their invited guests will enjoy the annual dance - and post-prom desserts!

Formal dress is expected: suits, tuxedos, dresses or pantsuits. There will be a corsage and boutonnière workshop offered as a student activities event prior to the dance.


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.
