Brimmer’s unique Honor’s Program empowers students to extend their intellectual curiosity in self-selected disciplines. Teachers help students develop the skills needed to conduct high level academic research, be independent learners, and creative problem-solvers. Student transcripts reflect this additional coursework.
Each teacher participating in the Honors Program requires quarterly projects and additional material for the students to learn. Some of this material might be designed to complete work needed for the SAT II subject exams. The School recommends that students who desire an additional academic challenge focus on an area of strength or interest when pursuing the Honors Program.
