Academics

For nearly five decades, Brookfield Academy has enjoyed resounding success not only as a result of its steady focus on offering an outstanding program in an environment of excellence, but also as a result of being able to select the finest combination of parents, students, and teachers anywhere in the world. The Academy has been recognized nationally for its classical liberal arts curriculum.

The results of the outstanding program speak for themselves:
  • Four-year-olds who enter Level A in September learn to read by Thanksgiving.
  • Middle School students run their own country within the school walls, complete with elected officials, taxes, and a booming market economy.
  • Upper School students earn recognition as National Merit Finalists, take top honors in Academic Decathlon, Mock Trial, and foreign language competitions, are accepted into the nation's premier colleges and universities, and enter those schools with numerous Advanced Placement credits.
  • 100% of Brookfield Academy students enter a four-year college or university program upon graduation. Students are accepted by many of the top colleges in the country.
  • Brookfield Academy is also proud to have a Rhodes Scholar among its alumni.
  • 97 faculty members, all with earned B.A. or B.S. degrees; 37 hold masters degrees and five hold doctoral degrees
  • 117-acre campus encompassing 6 buildings, 4 libraries, 4 gymnasiums, 8 science labs, playgrounds and playfields, a lighted football/soccer field, 5 practice fields, running track, field hockey game field, baseball and softball diamonds, tennis courts, 3 music studios, 5 art centers, 5 computer labs, campus-wide wireless connectivity, fully-networked campus.


Academic excellence is part of the larger Academy mission. As Mr. William Law, one of the founders of the schools said in a speech to Academy fathers in 1981, "the Academy student learns to adapt to life, to pursue a career, to 'make a living,' but if that is all he or she learns, we have failed. Ultimately, if the Academy has been a success the student graduates with firm moral principles, and with an understanding of and appreciation for his or her culture, and with a sense of responsibility to every person."
