Browne Academy’s accredited program offerings are designed for students from preschool through grade eight. When you enroll your child at Browne, you can be confident that your child will thrive based on a unique combination of curriculum, instructional approach and learning environment that you won’t find anywhere else.
- Our Curriculum:
- An academic curriculum second to none. Students learn how to learn, with strong foundations in reading, writing and mathematics that are developed from Preschool, toLower School (K-4) to Middle School (Gr. 5-8)
- Specialized learning opportunities. Students work with specialist teachers to broaden their abilities in world languages, physical education, music and the arts.
- A wide array of enrichment activities. Athletic teams/programs, electives, extended day and extra-curricular programs inevitably feature something for everyone.
- A limelight that truly goes around. All three divisions (Preschool, Lower School, Middle School) host trademark events throughout the year that puts their respective students on “center stage”.
- Individualized Instruction:
- Small class sizes. Teachers are able to provide individualized attention to each student, essential to building academic foundations while fostering individual talents.
- Emphasis on communication. In addition to the many ways in which we keep parents informed, we ask all faculty and staff to respond to any form of communication within 24 hours of receipt.
- Student leadership opportunities. We inspire students to lead at all grade levels, both in and out of the classroom, through buddy and mentor programs as well as school-wide community service initiatives.
- Our Learning Environment:
- Serene campus. Our all-encompassing 11 acre campus features streams, mature trees and rolling hills--the perfect backdrop for learning.
- State-of-the-art facilities. Our CAPA facility (Center for Athletics and Performing Arts), technology lab, two libraries and swimming pool provide hands-on learning opportunities for all students.
- A safe environment. Browne provides a nurturing atmosphere where all children feel safe to explore and expand their horizons, where individuals are valued and respected, and where a love of learning is central to the educational experience.
