When Brookstone became a member of Global Online Academy in 2017, we joined a consortium of elite independent schools committed to developing students through excellent teaching and deep learning in shared, online classrooms. In fact, there are only four other schools in the state of Georgia who are members, Lovett, Savannah Country Day, and Westminster. Brookstone’s partnership with GOA allows eligible students access to specialized courses during which they engage and learn alongside students from around the world. Courses are led by teachers exclusively from member schools, and they all […]
Upper School Club Day was last week and it was a beautiful day on the quad to hold sign ups! One of the great things about Brookstone is the ability to be involved in a variety of activities! And with over 40 clubs to choose from, from academics to sports to the arts, there truly is something for everyone! Just to name a few, there’s a club for sign-language, coding, fishing, gardening, ornithology, investment, pre-med, music, dance, and school spirit to choose from. There’s even the Happy Club! Who doesn’t […]
We’re a few weeks into school, but we would be remiss not to remember all the fun had at our Freshman Retreat at the start of the year. All of our freshmen load up on buses with their Link Crew Leaders and Advisors and travel three hours north to Camp Mac in Munford, Alabama for three days of team building, fun, and adventure! With so many new freshmen entering high school, the Freshman Retreat serves an important purpose, integrating new students into the class, and it does so incredibly well! […]
The Intermediate School might just be one of the happiest places on campus! This past week, parents were invited to join in on the Morning Meeting to get a glimpse of what their children experience every day. After lots of dancing and singing, announcements were made, accolades were given, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited, and a mini spirit competition was held before sending them off to class. Wish I’d been able to start the school day this way! It was awesome! Enjoy!
What an incredible First Day of School! The pictures say it all! 2018-2019 will be the best yet! Click here to watch a video from the Lower School and here for one from the Intermediate School! #betheonewhohasagreatyear

Wednesday, we kicked off graduation week in full swing! It began with our yearbook assembly! Presented to the students by yearbook editor, Sarah Beth Amos, this year’s theme was “Blueprints.” In her remarks, Sarah Beth said, “This year’s theme is “Blueprints”. If you have ever watched the progress of a major construction project, you may know that it starts with a blueprint. A blueprint is defined as photographic print in blue on white; a detailed plan used as a model to provide guidance. That seemed to us to perfectly represent […]
