About

Brewster Hall
We take our mission statement to heart in all we do at Suffield. It is an essential part of who we are and guides our philosophy and program.
 

This is a school that combines challenging academics and high standards with an encouraging, supportive faculty. This unwavering mission rests at the heart of why our school is thriving. Students come to this small New England town from all parts of the world, dedicating themselves to their studies and self-exploration. Each year brings new surprises as students discover unknown talents—sometimes it is the sports star who unearths an affinity for acting or the technology whiz who is surprised to find a passion at the potter’s wheel.
As we proceed each year as a community, we strive to make our priorities more permanent—most especially focusing on meeting each student where they are and genuinely helping them grow as scholars and people.Charles Cahn III, Head of School
