- Newly opened-our brand new $28 million Center for the Arts. Featuring an abundance of practice spaces, community meeting areas, and state of the art technology, it is a perfect space for the arts in the middle of the campus.
- Brooks has three unique programs we encourage you to learn more about: Students on the Forefront of Science, Winter Term, and our Exchange Program.
- The goal of Winter Term is to put into practice the concept of "depth over breadth," something that supports the school`s mission of providing the most meaningful educational experiences Brooks students will have. The single-course structure of Winter Term allows students and faculty to work together even more closely than they do in regular classes.
- The Students on the Forefront of Science Program is an initiative developed by the Science Department at Brooks School. The goal of the program is to provide rising sixth-formers (between junior and senior year) with innovative experiences that will expose them to research, technology, and advanced studies in the sciences.
- Our Exhange Program, founded in 1986, promotes the global education of students from Brooks and its partner schools in Botswana, Hungary, Morocco, Scotland, Spain and Peru. By living abroad as residents in other school communities, our students are challenged to extend themselves to another place, another culture, another people and, most importantly, to be affected by them, to be changed by them.
- Something exciting is always going on here, so please make an appointment to come visit us in person or virtually.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
