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


Meet and speak with faculty on campus during our annual Fall Visit Day for prospective students and their families. During this informal event for eighth-, ninth- and tenth-grade students, parents and students will hear from Brooks' Head of School John Packard and can connect with teachers. Members of our six academic departments -- as well as the leaders of our special programs, including Exchange, Students on the Forefront of Science and other initiatives -- will be on hand to answer questions. Visit our Fall Visit Day page to register and get details!

Through the Clay Soper Memorial Fund - that educates, engages and empowers youth with life-saving information about the risks of misusing and abusing prescription drugs - Allie Soper will visit Brooks to share the story of her brother's accidental death at 19 from mixing prescription drugs with alcohol.

Prior to her visit, Self in Community classes will watch and discuss the documentary "If They Had Known," which shares an honest and emotional account of the night Clay died and the lasting impact of his death.

Alumni, current and past parents, friends of Brooks and employees: You are invited to our annual Boston Reception! Please join us for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and remarks by Head of School John Packard H'87, P'18, P'21. Get all the details, register and see who's coming. We look forward to seeing you!

The class of 2024 will be hosting Brooks School's annual block party on the Class of 2020 Quad. Students will enjoy moon bounces, face painting, games, jousting and painting pumpkins purple to raise awareness for epilepsy. The event will be followed by a dance in the Black Box Theater!

Students enjoy a long weekend in the middle of the first semester.

A sweet Brooks tradition: Parent volunteers treat students and employees to Halloween desserts, plus raffle prizes, during lunch!

Brooks students will enjoy a special day of building a beloved community focusing on Brooks School's core value of empathy with guest speaker, writer/activist Dariana Guerrero in workshops that focus on "Simpatía: Building Beloved Community through a Latinx Lens."

Simpatía is deeply embedded in the broader cultural and social fabric of many Latinx societies. It's linked to other cultural values including familismo (the importance of family) and personalismo (the value of personal relationships). Embedded in the concept of simpatía is a deep sense of empathy. Understanding and being attuned to another person's feelings, even without them expressing it, is crucial. This level of empathy often extends beyond individual interactions to a broader sense of compassion for others in the community.

Students and faculty depart to celebrate Thanksgiving. The break concludes on November 27 (boarding students return by 8 p.m.).

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.
