Moses Brown is a Friends school. Our Quaker mission and traditions provide a model for education that supports the development of the whole child, and nurtures his or her inner promise or potential. Students from many different backgrounds have benefitted from.
Founded in 1784, Moses Brown is an independent, college preparatory school, enrolling 765 boys and girls, nursery through grade 12. The school's founder — an innovative thinker, philanthropist, and entrepreneur named Moses Brown — envisioned a progressive school that defined excellence. Today, his school continues to help children reach their full potential, academically, spiritually, and athletically. We engage all constituents in the collaborative process of nurturing students growth and supporting their aspirations. We foster self-discovery, learning for its own sake, resourcefulness, and compassion.
