The Peter Clark Center for Mind, Brain, and Education fuels teaching and learning excellence by bridging research and practice for faculty, students, and parents. We support every child to be a student at Breck and a learner for life. To reach every student, we work with every teacher.

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.

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.
