Graduation has come and gone, but we are still celebrating our graduates! Brookstone’s Class of 2022 was accepted to 89 different colleges and universities around the country and even the world. They also received over $7.3 million dollars in scholarships!! What an amazing group of young men and women! We are so incredibly proud of them!
April is the Month of the Military Child, a time to honor the sacrifices made by military families worldwide with an emphasis on the experience of the dependent children of military members serving at home and overseas. As part of our Month of the Military Child celebration, which included a special breakfast, Purple Up! Day, and more, students learned that the dandelion is the official flower of the military child. Do you know why? The dandelion can put down roots almost anywhere and thrive. They adapt easily and stand ready to fly into breezes that take them to […]
As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, it is only fitting to honor those teachers with an official, “Thank you.” Thank you for what you do day in and day out and for the many ways, often unacknowledged, that you pour yourselves out for the sake of your students. We simply cannot say thank you enough. Here at Brookstone, people matter. Our students matter and they know they matter. They know our teachers are FOR them, fighting for them, working on their behalf, and doing everything they can to provide the […]
The University of Georgia had some Brookstone Cougars on the sidelines taking in all the G-Day action! Freshman Mal Waldrep, Juniors Walter Blanchard and Dylan Thornton were visiting as recruits, and former UGA player Prather Hudson, Brookstone Class of 2016, joined them on the sidelines. We can’t wait to watch these boys in the years to come! So Go Dawgs, but Go Cougars always and forever!
It was a wonderful week celebrating art and music on campus in our annual Spring Arts Festival! Though it has been two years since we have been able to host this event, we more than made up for with all the beautiful displays of talent and community. It was practically perfect in every way! Under spectacularly blue skies, piano music wafted softly over the quad throughout the day as students would stop to play on one of the outdoor pianos their way to class. They would gather around tables to […]
Throughout this school year we have enjoyed celebrating Brookstone’s 70 anniversary – 70 years that encompass a remarkable history and vision built on a solid foundation of values. This important milestone has given us a chance to celebrate our founding, reflect on our success, revel in the sense of community we’ve built over seven decades, and imagine our next 70 years. To celebrate the 70th anniversary, we invited several people to reflect on Brookstone’s history in a video story. Two things were evident, the values that Brookstone was founded on […]
Just before Spring Break, our Upper School students took part of Brookstone’s 15th annual Day of Service. Spreading out around the Columbus area, our students partnered with 14 different local agencies to help them with everything from painting to landscaping to playing with kids! Before the work began, we gathered our students together to hear from a special guest. Brookstone parent Colonel Jim Hathaway, soon to return Ft. Benning to command the 198th Infantry Brigade, visited with our students and spoke about Servant Leadership and how we can offer hope […]
There was lots of activity here on campus today! We had 3K Doctor Day and a Vocab Parade! First up, 3K Doctor Day – where all of your ailments could be tended to. Need a Band-aid? A quick MRI? Or perhaps you just need a good blood pressure check to get you through your day! No need to look further than our 3K classrooms where lots of future doctors were hard at work! After you had received all necessary treatment, it was time to head to the most spectacular, colorful, […]

A recent social media post from one of our 5th grade teachers summed up perfectly the bond our students and teachers share here at Brookstone. She wrote: “I was on the playground with my kiddos today when one of my ‘former’ kiddos walked up and gave me a hug! As our school continues to grow, it takes engineers and brains to plan and oversee! You are looking at the TOP DOG!!! I am so proud of you, Tim! This makes it all worthwhile. Precious child; dynamic young man!!! HARD WORK […]
