Welcome to Brewster! It is our priority to keep Brewster parents connected to campus life, and most important, to your child and his or her progress while at Brewster.
Every Friday when school is in session, we update This Week at BA, which features the week’s highlights, such as student accomplishments and activities around campus, the upcoming weekend activities, deadline reminders, and of course as many photos and videos that we can compile in a week. And, you can always find out who and what is making news via our Social Mashup page – a feed of our various social media platforms, including blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and Vimeo
Weeklies – every Friday students write a short review of their week, which includes a reflection on that week’s Grades, BMP Record, their Best Self Goals, and “This Week in My Life”. This writing offers students a way to reflect upon, and take ownership for, their overall performance at Brewster, which is an important first step toward growth and development.
Student Progress Reports – grades, recognition scores, and teacher comments are available six times a year.
Family Weekend – every October (October 21-2, 2016), this provides families a chance to meet with their student’s teachers, participate in special campus events, such as our annual live and silent auctions and curriculum workshops, meet other parents, watch students in sports contests, and enjoy campus amidst the beauty of autumn in New England.
Spring Showcase – Toward the end of April this Showcase features the work of studio arts students, a musical and/or theatrical performance, and sports contests.
Grandparents’ Day – We welcome Grandparents for a day designed especially for them with a morning program followed by sports contests in the afternoon. Photos. This usually takes place in late September or early October.
Commencement – a two-day event beginning with the Ivy Address and a Head of School’s Reception on the evening before commencement. On graduation day, a morning ceremony is followed by a lakeside luncheon. In 2017, Commencement is on Saturday, May 27.
We have receptions throughout the country (actually, throughout the world) to offer parents and prospective parents and students an opportunity to get to know the Brewster family and the Brewster program. Host cities and towns change from year to year.
