“A school’s not a place – it’s people.” It’s a coming together of community and of beliefs shared by many. We believe that education includes learning to build stronger connections to the world. The Corwin-Russell School at Broccoli Hall is a small private college-prep school for around 35 exceptionally bright students, grades 6 to 13. Through involvement in thinking, learning, communicating and evaluating, we help our students build the resourcefulness, self-responsibility and confidence that allows them to take risks and unlock their interests, talents, academic and personal potential. Our educational philosophy, based on the Latin “educare”, is based on trust, responsibility, expression and a belief in each other and the school community. As well as the traditional academic areas, we offer an outstanding STEM as well as visual and performing arts program, and outdoor learning experiences. Combining theater, music and art, students are encouraged to try new things and take risks, practice problem-solving as a group while inspiring each other. Part of our curriculum – the Drama Intersession – provides students with an enriching theater experience. Our outdoor program Project FEAT, seeks to foster a willingness to experience the unfamiliar, push limits and promotes self-confidence. Students participate in activities designed to be individually challenging as well as fun! Our extended campus, Silver Lake in the High Peaks of the Adirondack Park, offers term-time and summer overnight trips. Due to our small size and our philosophy, we do not rank students or calculate GPAs. Nearly 97% of our graduating seniors choose to pursue a college degree. Our students have been accepted to an impressive list of colleges such as Brown University, Berklee College of Music, Northeastern University, New York University, University of Chicago, University of London (UK) and many more.
