About Our Schools:
At The Brookewood School for girls, we believe that our school should help parents form their daughters into young women who are educated, cultured, pious, cheerful, adventurous, and generous. We cultivate the spirit of community, family involvement and assist high school students in the responsibility of being an "older sister" to the younger students.
The Avalon School for boys motto, Duc in Altum ("Put out into the deep"), is taken from Saint John Paul II's Apostolic letter "Novo Millennio Ineunte." These words "invite us to remember the past with gratitude, to live the present with enthusiasm, and to look forward to the future with confidence." Young men at Avalon learn that taking risks and making commitments in their daily lives - intellectually, spiritually and physically - are necessary to grow both personally and professionally.
Each school (unique in its own way) is here to support our current student body, our community, our faculty and our alumni. Please remember to join both schools after the race for grilled food and refreshments.
