In pursuit of its mission, Brookfield Academy's directors, Head
of School, division heads, teachers, staff, students, parents,
supporters, and friends mutually pledge to embrace fully and
without reservation the values represented by the Five Stars:
We believe that students are eager to learn. We try at all times
to respond to this natural enthusiasm, striving for maximum
intellectual development and growth in each student.
We believe in emphasizing character formation in all that we do.
We motivate students to be satisfied with nothing less than their
very best. We help students develop self-esteem and self-confidence
and the determination to tackle and master the difficulties
inherent in any worthy activity. We also seek to instill respect
for others, using the Golden Rule as our standard of conduct. We
stress consideration, courtesy, and good manners at all times. We
offer caring guidance and support to help each student develop a
sense of personal accountability.
We respect the lessons of ancient civilizations and our own
country's past. We not only teach students about the forces, ideas,
and people who shaped Western Civilization but also help them
understand the spiritual values which underlay and animated them.
Our students derive an understanding of America's heritage and are
imbued with a love for its traditions of individual liberty and
responsibility and a desire to perpetuate them.
We believe in telling the truth as an everyday practice, and we
believe in the existence of Truth, emanating from God. We want our
students to develop reverence for absolute values and a commitment
to pursue the good and the true.
We believe each student is unique, bringing to life a
combination of talents, abilities, interests, and experiences that
are duplicated nowhere else, and whose lifelong task is to realize
the potential inherent in that uniqueness. We believe in helping
each student develop his or her own individuality; for it is while
striving for ideals that students stretch their minds, hone their
talents, stimulate their natural interests, and, in the process,
learn who they are. We know such fulfillment is important for the
student now and for future success in society. We want our students
to respect each other, treasure personal freedom, and recognize the
inescapability of personal responsibility.
