You may have heard about some colleges and universities going test-optional or test-blind. What does that mean? Here’s a word from Brookstone’s Director of College Counseling, Bob MacLellan. There have been many changes to the traditional college admissions process because of Covid-19 – from virtual college tours to zoom interviews just to name a few. However, the biggest change that will affect the Class of 2021 and potentially beyond is the use of standardized testing. In the wake of closed testing sites and limited access to testing sites this fall, […]
It wasn’t the beautiful graduation we had planned for May 16th, but it was such a fun celebration nonetheless! We love these graduates and are so incredibly proud of this group of students. They truly will be the ones to make history! They already have! We are tentatively planning an in-person graduation for later this summer, which we hope will allow for this class to gather together one last time and commemorate more officially. So stay tuned for more graduation celerbations to come! In the meantime, click here for a […]
One of the things that makes Brookstone so special is our alumni community. With more than 3000 alumni worldwide, being part of the Brookstone family is a tie that binds us all together. Some of those alumni wanted to share some wisdom and encouragement to this Class of 2020, who are indeed graduating in historic times. Enjoy their words of wisdom in the video below!
Congratulations to the Class of 2020! We are so proud of all you have accomplished!
If there is anything the past two months have taught us, it’s that our teachers are the ABSOLUTE BEST IN THE WORLD! We are so grateful! And to show them just a little token of that appreciation, our Brookstone Parents Association surprised all of our faculty members with “thank you” yard signs and some well-deserved goodies. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure that our students remain connected and engaged and have continued to learn, grow, and thrive! They are heroes in my book every single day! Thank you, Brookstone […]
Like everything else associated with graduation and the traditions involved, the Senior Mentor Breakfast, sponsored by our Brookstone Parents Association, looked different this year. However, even though we were unable to gather and celebrate with our seniors and their mentors, our scheduled speaker, Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, still wanted to share some thoughts with the seniors, one of whom is his nephew. You can click the video below to view his remarks. Dear Class of 2020, We are so proud of you and the things you’ve accomplished during your time […]
Week Six is in the books for Brookstone DLP and it’s hard to believe how quickly this year is coming to a close.

Brookstone Heroes Once again, it is an honor to thank the many Brookstone family members […]

BIG night for our fantastic Brookstone seniors at tonight’s Ledger-EnquirerPage One Awards! While we couldn’t be there to cheer on our students in person, Mr. Paul Hampton hosted a Zoom watch party that was filled with faculty, staff, and all of our outstanding nominees. Every single Brookstone nominee is an absolute rock star, and we couldn’t be prouder. These kids are amazing – each and every one of them and we know BIG things are in store for ALL of them! However, six of our seniors walked away with honors and […]
