How Can I Get Involved?


On this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, students will explore the challenges of being our authentic selves - with guest speaker social justice education scholar Jamila Lyiscott - and in student- and faculty-run workshops on related topics.

Parents of current students are invited to come watch class presentations, explore the Winter Term curriculum and talk with students and teachers about all that they've worked on during the intensive term. A reception with refreshments will follow!

Students enjoy a weekend off, through January 27 (boarders return by 8 p.m.), before second semester begins.

It's Brooks School's fifth-annual Giving Day, the biggest day of the year for the Brooks Fund. We would love to topple last year's Giving Day total of 745 gifts, but can't do it without your support. Please join forces with others off campus to ensure a meaningful experience for all on campus!

The annual 100 Days until graduation event is held to inform sixth-formers about what their connection to Brooks will be like as alumni. The Alumni Office also takes this opportunity to talk with students about what it means to donate to Brooks, and works toward 100-percent participation in the class of 2020 gift.

Alumni, parents and friends of Brooks School are invited to join host Isabella Speakman Timon '92 and Head of School John Packard P'18, P'21 for drinks and hors d'oeuvres at the Gulf Stream Bath & Tennis Club. Get details, see who's coming and RSVP HERE. All are welcome: We look forward to seeing you!

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

The Parents Committee treats Brooks faculty and staff to a luncheon on campus to say thank you for all that they do!

Spring Break ends as boarding students and faculty return to campus in preparation of resuming classes tomorrow.

Accepted students are welcome to campus for the first of our two April revisit days.
