Director's Welcome

Welcome to Breck …

I have been where you are — looking at schools for my own children after our family relocated to Minnesota.

I read about Breck online and called to schedule a tour. As our tour guide greeted us, I remember worrying that a 60-minute visit might not be enough to get a sense of Breck and what it offered. How were we going to choose the best school for our family?

My worries faded away the minute a first-grade teacher invited my daughter into her Chinese class and quickly had her translating words. I was amazed at how quickly my little girl felt completely at home. Being at Breck, I could feel the difference.

Breck has a long tradition of fostering an inclusive environment. We incorporate service leadership and community engagement into our curriculum. In addition to the highest academic standards, a groundbreaking Chinese program, and an award-winning science research program, it is the service aspect that sets Breck apart. Breck students garner a strong sense of social responsibility throughout their years here.

That night, after our initial tour of Breck, my daughter turned to me and said, “Dad, when can we go back to that school where I was speaking Chinese?” It was clear … we had found our school. I hope you have found yours as well.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
