The Campaign for Brewster
The impact of Brewster's student-centered, team-based education can be fully mapped only with the passing of time. The effect our work has on individual students, our shared academic community, the larger communities we're a part of, and on the world of education itself is exponential.
These widening spheres of influence represent transformation on three levels -- students, community, education -- each one reinforcing and giving shape to the next. No other boarding school in the country is so intentionally focused on the scaling of its influence.
Our greatest asset is the time-tested Brewster Model: an extraordinary culture of teaching and learning for a cognitively diverse student population combined with a potent set of classroom practices. With a growing body of evidence behind us, we know it's the way education should be. We have reached an inflection point in our capacity to shape the world as it should be. This is truly a watershed moment.
We hope you will join in supporting Our Watershed Moment: The Campaign for Brewster.
As Brewster celebrates the remarkable milestone of its 200th anniversary, we have the mandate -- and the will-- to make a difference on a larger scale."craig Gemmell, head of school
We will build a vibrant student center and creativity hub, with flexible, expanded space purposely designed for socializing, performing, and project-based learning.
We are creating a distinct new dormitory environment for our lower school, initiating a ripple effect that will transform the flow and connections across our entire residential campus.
We will upgrade our existing facilities and campus byways, expand support for our students and faculty, and make strategic investments in our academic programs by raising at least $1 million each year for the Fund for Brewster.
We will increase scholarships for local students and those from farther afield who bring a valuable range of backgrounds, perspectives, experiences, and unique talents to our campus.
Together, in this historic moment, we will make investments that will launch Brewster on a path to realize our vision: an approach to learning with the exponential power to transform education, communities, and the lives of students in our care.
