Brewster Academy is a small boarding school with 350 students set on a beautiful lake in New Hampshire. Brewster has strong sports (they often have basketball players who are recruited to play for Division 1 colleges), and sailing and crew (proximity to the lake makes these attractive), but also strong support for students.

This support is seen in many different ways, from the team of teachers for each grade level who attend meetings each day to discuss students, to a variety of instructional support programs for students who need this, to providing six sets of teacher comments in each class each year. Brewster seeks cognitive diversity, and is interested in students mastering understanding in subjects rather than memorizing for the test.

The environment and community make this a good fit for a student seeking an inclusive, supportive environment.
