Brooks School was founded in 1926 by Endicott Peabody, who had previously established Groton School in 1884.[1] It was named after Phillips Brooks (1835–1893), a well-known clergyman and author who spent summers in North Andover, Massachusetts, and briefly served as the Episcopal Bishop of Massachusetts during the 1890s.[2] Other founders included Harvard professor Roger Bigelow Merriman and Charles Slattery, the acting (and future) Bishop of Massachusetts.[1]

The school opened on September 29, 1927, with fourteen boys in the first and second forms (seventh and eighth grades), two masters, a headmaster and headmistress, and one dormitory. The school added one form (grade) each year thereafter until it comprised grades 7–12, denoted by the British educational notations, Forms I, II, III, IV, V, and VI, respectively. Forms I and II (seventh and eighth grades) were later dropped.

Brooks School has had just four heads of school in over 80 years.

  • Frank D. Ashburn was appointed at the age of 25 and served for 46 years until his retirement in 1973.
  • H. Peter Aitken served from 1973 to 1986.
  • Lawrence W. Becker (previously the assistant headmaster of Hotchkiss School) served from 1986 to 2008.[3]
  • John R. Packard (previously the faculty dean of Brooks) became head of school in 2008.[4]

The school started admitting day students in the early 1950s and became co-educational in 1979.

In the 21st century, Brooks has focused on renovating the campus. New buildings include the arts center, the science center, the admissions building, and a crew boathouse on Lake Cochichewick.[5][6]

Student body

In the 2022-23 school year, Brooks enrolled 353 students (76 freshmen, 83 sophomores, 92 juniors, and 102 seniors).[7] 70% of Brooks students live on campus; the other 30% commute to Brooks from surrounding communities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.[8]

30% of Brooks students identify as people of color.[8] In the 2021-22 school year, of the 351 Brooks students, 249 (70.9%) were white, 42 (12.0%) were Asian, 23 (6.6%) were black, 20 (5.7%) were Hispanic, 3 (0.9%) were Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, 1 (0.3%) was Native American, and 13 (3.7%) were multiracial.[9]


Tuition and financial aid

Tuition for the 2023-24 school year is $73,400 for boarding students and $60,300 for day students.[8] 35% of the student body is on financial aid, and the average aid grant is $49,000.[8] In 2023, 122 Brooks families received financial aid grants; after deducting financial aid, 33 families paid between $0 and $5,000 for tuition, and another 19 families paid under $10,000.[10] 38 families receiving aid had family incomes under $100,000/year.[10]

Endowment and expenses

Brooks' financial endowment stands at $101.9 million.[8] In its Internal Revenue Service filings for the 2021-22 school year, Brooks reported total assets of $196.7 million, net assets of $142.4 million, investment holdings of $83.6 million, and cash holdings of $17.6 million. Brooks also reported $27.2 million in program service expenses and $6.2 million in grants (primarily student financial aid).[11]

The school completed a $60 million fundraising campaign in 2008.[5] It is currently conducting the Centennial Campaign, which seeks to raise $80 million for various initiatives, including $30 million in endowment funds for financial aid and $10 million to support faculty salaries.[12]
