Brewster Academy has more experience with integrating technology into the classroom than just about any other school in the country. We began our one-to-one laptop program in 1993 and have been continuously learning and evolving how to meaningfully integrate the latest technologies into the classroom experience ever since.It has never been about just putting computers in the hands of teachers and students.

It is all about intentionally marrying the power of technology with our established set of teaching practices so that the learning process is more efficient, deeper, and more relevant for you. It has always been our goal to put you at the center of the learning process and technology is a tool that helps us do that.
