Welcome to The Brearley School

Applicants often attribute their enthusiasm for Brearley to the spirited and intellectual engagement they observe firsthand on their campus tours, where meaningful interactions between classmates and dynamic teaching particularly resonate. We have designed a hybrid admission process to empower families as they make important decisions about their child's education.

What We Hope Applicants Will Take Away From The Admission Process:

  • How your family might connect Brearley’s diverse community of scholars, artists, athletes, leaders, friends, and activists
  • How Brearley's many enriching programs lead students to develop lifelong academic and extracurricular passions
  • What it means to attend a “school for girls,” where students can see themselves reflected every day in a variety of leadership positions and classes
  • Where the breadth and depth of a Brearley student's educational journey might ultimately take them
