From preschooler to senior, we actively cultivate the growth of the whole child.

We believe that with the unwavering pursuit of knowledge comes the development of character, values, imagination, and the joy of living a purposeful life—intellectually, socially, and spiritually.

 

 

At Breck, we create an ideal learning environment for our students by carefully crafting just the right combination of trusting relationships and intellectual challenge.

Head of School

From preschooler to senior, we actively cultivate the growth of the whole child.

Through trusted relationships with teachers and friends, mentors and staff, students come to understand the extraordinary dimensions of their voices and depth of their passions. They discover paths they didn't know possible. And go forward in brave new directions.

Our Philosophy

  • We are a community of high-achieving, motivated students and teachers focused on intellectual inquiry, engagement, and bridging educaitonal research with classroom practice.
  • We create a vibrant community hat nurtures and inspires a lifetime love of learning and a commitment to the greater good.
  • We emphasize personalizing each student's experience in the pursuit of excellence.
  • We live our Episcopal roots through a commitment to peace and justice, inquiry and reason, and service to the common good.

We partner in the growth of our students through the following principles:

 

 

Principles

Academic Press

Students' intellectual curiosity thrives in cultures of high academic expectation.

Breck is where students learn to love learning. Academic Press challenges and pushes each student to engage fully in learning that is interesting, demanding, and rewarding. At each developmental stage, they are surrounded with opportunities to enhance intellectual growth. In a caring environment, Academic Press encourages students to challenge themselves, and to thrive on the challenge.

Personalization

Rigorous academic programs in a caring environment unlock potential.

Personalization refers to our commitment to know each unique individual's interest and motivations, fears and doubts. Through personalization we build the rust it takes to push students to the next level in every space at Breck—classroom, athletic field, or stage.

Inclusivity

We believe the value of one should be valued by all.

Through participation in a mosaic community where our differences are respected and celebrated, students develop self-confidence and a greater understanding of the world around them. We believe that a healthy academic environment is one that is versatile, embracing the richness of varying perspectives. It is through diversity work that our students develop self-confidence, a sense of social responsibility rooted in empathy, and the power of their own voice.

Many Paths

All faiths and cultures are welcome at Breck.

Our Episcopal identity is rooted in a legacy of inclusion. We believe there are many paths to God and that through knowledge and experience of religions throughout the world, we deepen our own beliefs. We hold an unwavering commitment to diversity and inclusivity and welcome all individuals to our community, whatever form their spirituality takes.

Social Responsibility

Investment in our community is central to being a student at Breck.

Community partnerships are a life-changing part of the Breck experience. From preschool through graduation, students have the opportunity to serve one another, their school, and the broader community, understanding how their actions can impact the greater good. Students build lifelong skills of compassion, problem-solving, and leadership, while making the world a better place.
