Doing Community Better Than the Rest

Our students and faculty say it perfectly, so scroll below to hear in their own words how Millbrook's mission informs their experience every day, in every way.

Our first video, Millbrook Made by alumnus Dan Cohen '86, features students during their first week at Millbrook as IIIrd formers and then in their final week as VIth formers. All share their experiences on the strength of community at Millbrook.

Learning to Serve, Learning to Lead

Millbrook's unique community service program provides students with real responsibility by doing something meaningful for the school - serving others for the welfare of the greater good. It is such a large part of the Millbrook experience, community service is incorporated into the daily academic schedule four days per week and creates many leadership opportunities for students.

Watch the video below to learn about the history of our community service and service learning programs that are at the very foundation of our mission.

Vision - The Best is Yet to Come

Millbrook School Momentum is undeniable, and our path forward will continue to be built on our mission, identity—those things that make Millbrook, Millbrook—and aspirations.

Our academic and residential life plans through the year 2025 and beyond include:
  • Major improvements and additions to athletic programming and the Mills Athletic Center including a new hockey rink and field house
  • A new Counseling Center and Business Office on Pulling Circle - COMPLETED
  • A new boys dormitory
  • Dorm improvements across all existing dorms, boys and girls
  • Anthony House, a new alumni house on Pulling Circle
  • Pulling House on Pulling Circle - a new home for the head of school, very much the same only better
  • Additional new faculty housing
  • New and renovated spaces for the World Language department, the humanities, and the library
All plans for these continuing improvements are being done in typical Millbrook fashion—with thoughtful and intentional design.

We also continue the important work of increasing our endowment:
  • By 2025, our goal is to raise an additional $30,000,000 in endowment to support financial aid, faculty salaries and professional development, and ongoing maintenance of our campus.
  • The Casertano Family Fund for Financial Aid is an additional endowed fund of $5,000,000 in honor of Drew and Linda Casertano. Drew Casertano was Millbrook's head of school for 31 years, and his wife, Linda, was Millbrook's longtime director of financial aid. This endowed scholarship fund is the ultimate recognition of their service to Millbrook and their roles in educating and changing the lives of so many students.
