We believe in providing a traditional and rigorous academic program that enables our students to develop the necessary creative and independent qualities of mind, to prepare for the demands of a competitive college and innovative professional experience, and to grow into adults who make significant and lasting contributions to society.
We strongly and comprehensively support the Upper School’s primary focus: To guide each young man to fulfill his potential as he prepares to enter college and to excel in a new working world that will increasingly require him to compete, connect, collaborate, and create. Each student is encouraged to reach his highest level of academic excellence as he becomes an integral, contributing member of the Brunswick community.
The value of our rich and rigorous, well-rounded education is reaffirmed as each boy emerges with an exceptional work ethic, a profound respect for others, a healthy outlook, and a positive demeanor — confident, yet humble.
Students are encouraged to strive for excellence in the classroom and to challenge themselves to be critical and independent thinkers.
The arts play an essential role in the education of every student. We encourage every student to value and pursue artistic self-expression.
In spite of all the emphasis on the skills of STEM — science, technology, engineering, and math — one trend in college application is in the entirely different discipline of art. Today, more and more colleges are creating room online for students to submit an Art Portfolio to supplement traditional application materials. As a junior, in Andrew Hall’s AP Studio Art 3-D Design, Wesley Peisch ’18 earned a perfect score on his portfolio from the College Board, becoming one of only four students across the globe to garner such praise. His work is now distinguished as the sample portfolio on the AP College Board website.Learn More
