Millbrook School

Millbrook School is a small, coeducational, college preparatory boarding school where close, nurturing, and stimulating relationships between students and their teachers have been the school's hallmark since its founding.
Our goal is to promote in each student the intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and physical growth which will lead to a life both individually satisfying and valuable to the greater society.
The mission of Millbrook school is to provide a rigorous, varied and comprehensive curriculum which is individually oriented, includes all aspects of learning, and requires meaningful, active involvement in the daily life of the school.
