At Brandon Hall, we recognize that knowledge has become relatively ubiquitous and significantly less expensive in its accessibility, and we acknowledge the shift from memorization to knowledge application across disciplines in terms of what is needed and rewarded in the modern international society. We also understand that essential learning factors such as brain development and motivational techniques have and will continue to evolve.

For these reasons, we purposefully integrate 21st century learning skills such as communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking into our educational program objectives. The combination of mastering academic concepts and enhanced non-cognitive skills are necessary for admission to and success in college and the international marketplace.

Mission Statement:

Brandon Hall's mission as a co-educational, global boarding and day school challenges students to lead lives of leadership, scholarship, and service. Our community celebrates learning, fosters global citizenship, embraces diversity, encourages athleticism and artistic expression, and inspires students to find their path and lead the way.

School History:

Founded in 1959 by Theodore and Shirley Hecht, Brandon Hall School is located on a pristine 24-acre campus on the Chattahoochee River near Atlanta, Georgia. The campus is the former summer estate of prominent Atlantan Morris Brandon and his wife, Harriet Inman, and includes the original 1920’s residence. Under Mr. Hecht’s guidance, 1959 – 1980, Brandon Hall School provided one-to-one instruction to boys from across the country.

From 1980 – present, the school has undergone many changes and improvements under the various Heads of School. During this time, the academic buildings and dormitory were built, Brandon Hall School was named a National School of Excellence, grades 4 – 8 were added, and the school joined the Atlanta Athletic Conference while introducing a variety of competitive sports for both girls and boys. The Resident Housing was built for faculty and staff wishing to live on campus, and the Great Hall was renovated to create a welcoming entrance to the school.

Since then, campus changes have actively increased fiscal sustainability of the school while supporting the school’s mission. Today, Brandon Hall is a coed nonprofit college preparatory day and boarding school serving students in grades 6th - 12th from across the United States and 20 countries.

Our mission as a co-educational, global boarding and day school challenges students to lead lives of leadership, scholarship, and service. Our community celebrates learning, fosters global citizenship, embraces diversity, encourages athleticism and artistic expression, and inspires students to find their path and lead the way.
