We know:

  • E/I-A-M-L:  Emotion drives Interest. Together, they drive Attention which drives Memory which results in Learning
  • Students thrive when they are self-advocates equipped with cognitive skills for learning: self-regulation, attention, memory, metacognition, cognitive flexibility, and growth mindset.
  • Students thrive when faculty understand learning and learners.
  • Faculty thrive when empowered to reflect, assess, and apply current research.
  • Parents thrive when given the tools to understand and support their child's unique learning journey.

We strive to create a culture within Breck School that:

  • Fosters reflection, metacognition, self-knowledge, and self-advocating among faculty and students.
  • Enriches and inspires faculty, through informed research and professional development, to help all students develop cognitive skills for learning: self-regulation, attention, memory, metacognition, cognitive flexibility, perception, and growth mindset.
  • Bridges research and practice for faculty, students, and parents and transforms teaching and learning by providing ongoing cutting-edge professional development. 
  • Engages parents, through a deeper understanding of learning and human development, to play the most effective role in their child’s education.
