Dr. Venters was chosen for the task force because of his work at the intersection of incarceration and health and human rights.

Today we honor Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day and Emancipation Day, which is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the effective ending of slavery in the United States.
Breck Yearbook Edition 79 officially dropped yesterday, and there were so many students who were beyond excited to receive their copy! The theme for this year’s edition is “Better Together,” and we caught up with this year’s editors Matthew Berestka ’22, Becca Holt ’22, and Belle Johansson ’22 to get their take on why this edition is special.
In April, Breck students in Grade 2, 3, and 4 competed in the semi-annual Noetic Learning Math Contest. Noetic Learning Math Contest is a national mathematics contest for elementary and middle school students. The goal of the competition is to encourage students' interest in math, to develop their problem-solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in math.
