A great strength of independent education is opportunity to speak & participate. Smaller communities and classes often require students to voice their positions and think aloud. These speaking opportunities often provide a great foundation when students arrive to college and find that they must speak to be heard.

John Walsh, a Brooks School graduate, cites his public speaking experiences at Brooks as one of the keys to winning Syracuse University's White Denison Prize in Public Speaking.

While at Brooks, Walsh won Brooks' Wilder Prize in Public Speaking three straight years and served as Brooks' student body president.

The Boston Globe profiled Walsh's win. Brooks posted a news item to their site as well. Both are worth a read.
Everyone's proud of their Olympians and boarding school alma maters are no exception. For fun, we took a few minutes to find as many boarding school athletes as we could competing in the Beijing 2008 games. We never cease to be amazed at the places and realms in which boarding school alumni participate.

Here's our list. We don't advertise it as exhaustive; if we've left someone out, add them to the comments section. Click the links to read their biographies and accomplishments.
