Community Outreach

Brunswick School is synonymous with community. The livelihood of this school hinges on the strength of a broader community. The responsibility of enriching young lives extends far beyond the front doors of this great institution into other important community initiatives.

Horizons at Brunswick School

The mission of Horizons at Brunswick is to help Federal Free/Reduced-Price lunch eligible Greenwich public school students improve their educational outcomes by providing academic and swimming instruction, enrichment opportunities, mentoring, and guidance in a nurturing community of dedicated professionals and volunteers.

Simply put by Head of School Tom Philip, “Good for the sake of good” is why Brunswick has embarked on providing summer enrichment opportunities for financially under-served students, to enhance their chances for success.

The Link Program

The Link Program began at Brunswick in the summer of 1985. Since then, Brunswick has opened its campus to young, ambitious boys from Greenwich, Port Chester, Stamford, and the surrounding community, “linking” them to a unique and rewarding summer opportunity.

The program runs for four weeks and is designed to provide academic enrichment and discovery opportunities for rising sixth, seventh, and eighth grade boys of diverse backgrounds — with a foundational goal to allow each student to better his self-image and motivation through rigorous academic exploration, as well as social and athletic interaction.

Candidates for the program must be in good academic standing, and they must demonstrate financial need.

The core curriculum revolves around real-life problem-solving. The boys take advantage of all the area has to offer with regard to outdoor learning activities. From climbing at The Rock Club, touring the Maritime Aquarium, visiting Tod’s Point, and taking advantage of Brunswick’s own campus, the boys are provided with real-life laboratories in which to study.

Other daily activities include creative writing, current events, exploratory science, computers, and studio art. Each day concludes with an outdoor sports period.
