I had the worst experience at Brewster Academy. I decided to switch schools during the summer before my senior year because the college counselors were not encouraging at all. I was not allowed to take AP classes even though I had the grades, and when I decided to transfer, my parents already paid full tuition for my senior year but they did not refund any. Any of them. So basically we lost more than $60,000. I do not recommend this school.
Brewster Academy was the best thing that ever happened to my daughter. This school transformed my daughter into a confident and capable student. She spent 4 years at Brewster and made life long friends and learned the importance of community. The setting on the lake is absolutely beautiful and inspiring.
We are from China, our son graduated in 2010 and hope our daughter will be able to attend in 2014. We found this to be a very safe setting with a nurturing staff. Our Son said he loved the experience and it was a great decision to send him there.
Worst $220,000 I ever spent. School appears to run for the administration not for the students.
