Roots of Belonging at Brewster
From its inception, Brewster has emphasized that a diverse learning environment is part of a quality education. In 1887, John Brewster’s estate established Brewster Free Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire under the condition that “No restriction shall be placed upon any person desiring to attend and receive instruction from said school or academy on account of his or her age, sex, or color, provided only he or she is of good moral character.” Today, as Brewster fulfills its mission to “prepare diverse thinkers for lives of purpose,” we continue that early vision. We embrace diversity in all its forms.
