Who are you? A major part of your learning experience at Brewster will be building the elements of your character—those qualities of your personality that determine the person you are and the person you can become. Building character is a fundamental part of the Brewster experience and our unique recognition program is one system of rewards that encourages student growth and transformation in such key areas as respect, integrity, and service.
Student Activities. Whatever your interests, you’re sure to find a group that shares your interest and enthusiasm. Whether you’re a paintball enthusiast, a knitter, a dancer, or enjoy spending time with children (Brewster Big Friends), there is something for everyone.
Student Government. Seniors hold the offices of senior prefects but any student meeting the eligibility requirements may apply for the position of prefect. The senior prefects represent the student body at regular meetings with members of the administration. Brewster’s student government consists of the senior prefects and the prefects. The student government is the liaison between students and faculty and administration. It seeks to identify areas of need and propose solutions and policy changes. It functions as the general legislative branch of the student body.
