At Brewster Academy I was exposed to a variety of very talented and special students and teachers. I learned to develop self confidence in myself and to appreciate my fellow students as individuals.

Brewster Academy is located in the the heart of Wolfeboro, NH. Students could easily walk to the the town center and thus mingle with the locals. You really felt like one of the Wolfeboro community.

Social life was really what each individual student made of it. There was really no peer pressure placed on the students to do anything that they really didn't want to do.
