INTELLECTUAL, PURPOSEFUL LEARNING:
A WHOLE EDUCATION
Brearley’s mission has long combined the highest academic rigor with an insistence on a larger purpose: a passionate exchange of ideas at school to prepare students to put their knowledge and habits of mind to meaningful use beyond.
In stewarding the continued excellence of a Brearley education, no group plays a larger role than our faculty. Teachers here have been known for giving students the gift of both friendship and of high expectations.
To secure the School’s legacy of exceptional pedagogy, we are emphasizing professional development and systematic curricular review to support our faculty as they continue to grow as scholars and teachers.
To support students as they pursue balance in their daily lives, we are also teaching social, emotional and leadership skills while cultivating greater inclusion and equity among our diverse community and fostering the values of courage, kindness, resilience and generosity.
You can support new educational programs and initiatives as well as the educators who develop and practice them through Annual Fund and endowment gifts.
