Portrait of a Graduate

Brookfield Academy’s purpose is grounded in our mission, to graduate students educated in the skills, values, and heritage of a responsible, constructive, free people. It is from the orderly development and use of the intellect and character that a child gains confidence, pride, versatility, and the eventual knowledge of self. It is our task to impart the tools and methods of learning, together with an appropriately substantial body of knowledge particular to each academic discipline.
