In recent years, Brearley alumnae, parents, students and faculty have accomplished important work together. We have selected new leadership, created a bold Strategic Vision for the School and secured our physical future. Now we stand at the next threshold.
As one alumna put it,“I’ve always loved our motto of ‘truth and toil’ because to me it means living in the striving.” Brearley is doing just that.
We are “living in the striving” as we shape what a Brearley education will look like in the 21st century and what such an education will mean for our students and future alumnae as they make their mark on the world.
Today, society often gives young women a choice between smart and happy, ambitious and generous, bold and kind. We want our girls to know such choices are false. We want to guide each girl as she grows into her own whole, extraordinary self. We want every student to define for herself what it means to be a Brearley girl.
Now, as at our founding and because of our history, we are uniquely positioned to reimagine girls’ education once again.
To do so, Brearley is launching an ambitious campaign to secure a new kind of wholeness at Brearley—wholeness of education, wholeness of community and wholeness of facilities.
We are building an expanded and yet more cohesive Brearley that will greatly deepen our capacity to fulfill our mission.
It will take all of us to champion this rare and precious place for today’s and tomorrow’s Brearley girls.
