Vibrant and growing, Brunswick School has been defined and distinguished for 112 years through its commitment to “Courage, Honor, Truth.” Enrolling approximately 950 boys in pre-Kindergarten through grade 12, the School believes that the strength of a young man’s character and depth of his spirit determines all genuine and lasting success. To that end, Brunswick strives to help boys and young men acquire the personal, intellectual, and physical training that will best enable them to grow into responsible adults who can make significant and lasting contributions to society.
The school offers rigorous academics, including an advanced science research program and 28 Advanced Placement courses. It offers comprehensive arts, drama, and music, and a renowned language program that includes instruction in Arabic, French, Spanish, Mandarin, Italian, Latin, and Greek.
Their competitive athletic program includes 17 varsity sports played on the school’s main athletic fields and in a 65,000-square-foot sports complex. A new belowground swimming pool was opened in 2014.
Brunswick has three campuses on a total of 118 acres in Greenwich. The preschool is located on 116 Maple Avenue, the Lower and Middle schools are part of Edwards Campus, located at 1252 King Street, and the Upper School is located at 100 Maher Avenue.
The school believes that a complete education must include lessons beyond the classroom. Even the youngest students participate in volunteer opportunities, which often evolve into full-fledged service projects at the Upper School. After school, students have access to 36 co-curricular clubs.
Through academics, athletics, arts, and service to the community, Brunswick encourages every student to develop his talents to the fullest, to understand the obligation to share them generously, to take risks to ensure growth, and to refuse to accept a narrow definition of himself.
