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

Brooks School's Parents Committee hosts this sweet annual tradition featuring a buffet of holiday treats for students, faculty and staff to enjoy, as well as a raffle for festive baskets of small gifts.

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.

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