Student Support

In support of Breck’s Mission and Values, the school is deeply committed to providing appropriate holistic support for students’ academic growth, physical health, and social-emotional wellbeing P-12. Division-level and/or grade-level teams meet regularly to discuss student needs. Plans are developed to address identified needs and we strive to work collaboratively with families throughout the process.

Lower School

If you have a question or concern about your Lower School Student, we encourage you to contact their homeroom teacher as a first step. They have direct and consistent contact with your child. They will connect with other members of the teaching and support team to discuss your concerns and respond in a timely manner. They can also help you connect with a Dean, Counselor, Learning Consultant, Academic Strategist, or Nurse. You are always welcome to reach out to a Dean, or one of the Student Support Team members for specific areas of support.

Middle School

If you have a question or concern about your Middle School student, we encourage you to contact their advisor as a first step. They have direct and consistent contact with your child.
