We embody and stand behind our motto, esse quam videri (to be rather than to seem). Below is a note from visiting parents who perfectly encapsulate just what we at Suffield aim to offer. New memories are being made each day here, ones that will be vividly recalled decades from now at reunions in Brewster Hall. This is a great environment benefitting from a crystal clear philosophy of how to best help people navigate their adolescent years.
It is obvious that what was an already beautiful campus has been dramatically strengthened and upgraded with amazing new facilities, especially the new Brewster Hall. But what most impressed us was the warm, genuine, and down-to-earth Suffield culture that permeates the school. Our daughters felt immediately at home at Suffield, and that’s the true test of whether a school fits our girls and our family. We already know Suffield has excellent academics, athletics, and arts. What we are really looking for is a school with a community where we can envision our daughters happily growing, exploring, developing, and excelling. It is clear to us that Suffield would offer them that opportunity.
