Brookfield Academy will take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of all students, faculty, and staff. We have consulted medical and legal professionals to devise safety protocols. The various safety procedures include, but are not limited to, the following:

The wellness check will include the following three questions:

We will take a private bus to our destination so students will see, in person, how the people/animals we visit benefit from our donations and our time. These classes are no charge to interested students, thanks to the generosity of Brookfield Academy parents and their businesses who have underwritten the cost of transportation for students and all necessary materials/supplies.
