Our Head of School's message and visionThe best independent schools offer outstanding alternatives to parents who are deciding how they would like to educate their children. Brandon Hall is a mission driven school where an educational philosophy is secured in a shared set of guiding principles. We are more than a place for a child to receive a great education. Brandon Hall is an extended part of your family where parents, teachers, staff, and administrators come together to help celebrate the success of every child.
We celebrate students with diverse backgrounds and multiple talents. We embrace those who learn at different rates and in a variety of ways. Our faculty is multinational and twenty percent of our enrollment is gifted multinational students from nearly every continent, speaking 13 languages. We literally are a global family, offering a unique world-class education where teachers are supportive and genuinely involved in all aspects of the school. This kind of close-knit community creates a strong bond and allows the "Panther" pride to flourish. Brandon Hall is a caring, fun, warm, and challenging place to learn.
Our teachers and staff care deeply. They pay close attention to their students and how they learn best. A national model in research-based education, with core classes from 4-8 students and specialized instruction; Brandon Hall has been successfully preparing students for college for over 53 years. And every year, every graduating senior is accepted into college.
Learning how to embrace technology and develop critical thinking skills lies at the heart of the schools' curriculum. Brandon Hall further seeks to value and support the uniqueness of each child's individual growth and genuine expression of whom he or she is developing into as an adult. We offer challenging and supportive experiences in academics, fine arts, and athletics, caring for each other, and caring for the community, and the world. At Brandon Hall students, faculty, and staff live each day to the maximum, in an honest effort to embrace learning as a life-long process, knowing that this pursuit will make them better persons, leaders, students, citizens, actors, artists, and athletes. To us, the common pursuit of our mission, by everyone in the schools' community, makes Brandon Hall one of the best co- educational day and boarding schools in the south.
I, along with the faculty, staff, and students at Brandon Hall invite you to join our celebration of learning.
John L. Singleton, Ed.D.
