Visitors & Assemblies

One of the many benefits of a Brunswick education is the chance to hear and learn from distinctive visitors who share their talent, time, and gifts with audiences, ranging from our youngest learners in the Pre School and Lower School all the way up to the young men in our Middle School and Upper School divisions. It is our goal to provide an array of visitors — such as judges, authors, artists, musicians, scientists, historians, and other professionals — to share their diverse experiences with our boys.
