  • At Breck we join fourteen grades on our single campus and your child inherits and stewards cherished traditions — progressing from a wide-eyed preschooler to a wise senior among peers and adults who feel like family.
  • Lower School years are some of the most influential periods of a child's life. Our early learning experts envelope your child in a caring community and open up the world to his or her inquisitive mind and boundless imagination.
  • Middle School is a time of transformational growth — physically, intellectually and socially. Our Middle School students handle these transitions uncommonly well because they're fully supported by their teachers and classmates, and they're engaged in learning that opens their eyes to countless possibilities.
  • Upper School students can take a wide range of AP courses and augment classroom learning by becoming immersed in the vibrant life of our Upper School. Breck students depart for college with troves of life and learning experiences.
  • The arts are important at Breck, where students are encouraged to develop confidence through increasing competency in both visual and performing arts.
  • Athletic offerings at Breck are unprecedented for a school of our size, and Breck athletes are top competitors.

Breck is the Golden Valley, single-campus, p-12 Episcopal independent school where living our mission means always reimagining, reinventing, and reanimating learning – both to model the process and rewards of authentic, meaningful learning for Breck students, and to continually grow, evolve, and reinvigorate as a learning enterprise.
In our continuously regenerating educational hive, each community member – preschooler to senior, teacher to coach, bus driver to administrator – is perpetually learning.
