We chose Breck because of the strong academic rigor, yet we found so much more.
Our children are encouraged to take risks and meet challenges head on at every level in academics,
arts, and athletics. Each child is a unique and valued member of this diverse community.Breck Parent
Our Upper School offers an exceptional experience for students in grades 9-12. Central to our mission is the development of each child's unique talents and potential to excel. We do this through our innovative curriculum, state-of-the-art learning spaces, talented faculty, and commitment to academics, the arts, and athletics. At Breck, students are cared for and known as individuals, which allows us to leverage their particular passions and motivations to drive deep, authentic learning. Through independent research opportunities, interdisciplinary classes, and post-AP course offerings, our students are challenged to explore new ideas and emerging fields of study. This, combined with our fully integrated community partnership program, research-informed teaching, and inclusive community, means that our students’ Upper School experience prepares them for a life of learning long after Breck.
