About Breck School
Breck School is a 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.
Founded in 1886, Breck is located in Golden Valley, Minnesota, about five minutes west of downtown Minneapolis. We serve a community of approximately 1150 students on our 50-acre campus. Visit www.breckschool.org for more information.
Breck students are independent thinkers, self-starters, socially conscious problem solvers, thoughtful athletes, visionary artists, perpetually curious and perpetually learning citizens. We want every Breck graduate to be fully realized human beings, confident, capable, and compassionate enough to change the world in the way he or she sees fit. If that approach mirrors yours, we encourage your further interest.
