- Brandon Hall School, founded in 1959, offers students excellent educational opportunities, prepares them for the next stages of their academic lives, college and eventually their career endeavors. We welcome boarding students, day students and international students, and 100 percent of our graduates are accepted to college. Our community celebrates learning, fosters global citizenship, embraces diversity, encourages athleticism and artistic expression, and inspires students to find their path and lead the way.
- Brandon Hall Academics and Programs are designed to help students grow in 5 Intelligences.
- STEAM Intelligence - We focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math education that will prepare students for the rapid pace of innovation in our world.
- Global Intelligence - The world is "flattening," and co-dependencies among cultures, beliefs and attitudes are increasing. We provide our students with the confidences to thrive in this global world.
- Environmental Intelligence - Caring for our global, collective home will require our students to gain an increasing understanding of why the environment matters and how to be responsible for its wellbeing.
- Wellness Intelligence - Exercise and nutritional attentiveness are essential to a healthy mind and learning, and caring for one`s own health allows students to care for others. This is why sport and exercise opportunities, along with a healthy diet, are intrinsic at BHS.
- Giving Intelligence - The "why, what, when and how" of giving and service comes both by learning and by experience. We provide for both during a student`s education at BHS.
- Entrepreneurship Intelligence - Brandon Hall`s Center for Global Youth Leadership and Social Entrepreneurial Studies inspires students from all over the world to live and learn together as they collaborate to solve some of the world`s biggest challenges. Brandon Hall students are bold, visionary, and active agents of change.
- Our Performance Standards articulate a rigorous progression of academic expectations for our students. In a global environment of quickly evolving knowledge of how students learn and constant technological innovation, our educational community is wholeheartedly committed to maintaining an integrated, coherent, and adaptively current academic curriculum, aligned with the school`s mission and the highly valued attributes and skills of our graduates. We encourage students to develop distinct habits of mind and appreciate learning through a combination of inquiry, experimental design and professionalism, putting a gradual emphasis on student independent work, creative thinking and effective oral and written communication. We motivate our students to ultimately think like scientists, historians, engineers, writers, artists, and mathematicians. We believe that motivation for learning comes from within the student, and it is our purpose to guide our students on a journey to discover who they are as learners in this world.
- Brandon Hall offers an array of academic support services, including counseling, advisement, English as a Second Language (ESL), and the Learning Support Center to help students succeed academically and for the rest of their lives.
