Mission

Branson develops students who make a positive impact in the world by leading lives of integrity, purpose, learning, and joy. 

Courage

Courage looks different for everybody. At Branson, we take risks, conquer fears, and do the right thing as we grow to be brave.

Kindness

Kindness means seeking understanding of others so we can be compassionate, helpful, and fair.

Honor

Honor is earned every day. At Branson, we create an environment of trust by taking responsibility for our own actions while pursuing our potential.

Purpose
hero-image-purpose

Purpose is something we find and something we offer. We see privilege as the opportunity to serve others and drive progress.

Branson is more than just a great school. It’s an ever-evolving educational community that challenges and supports students as they grow into confident, thoughtful, ethical people.

Why Branson?

Branson is where students find their own voice, pursue their aspirations, and build character for a life-long journey.

Multi-Talented

No need to choose one path. Branson students can be winners on the field, scholars in the classroom, and stars onstage. 81% of students compete in interscholastic sports and over 85% of students participate in the arts.

Collaborative

At Branson, learning is a discovery process based on collaboration and mutual respect. You might find your English teacher is a rock star, your physics teacher makes pottery, and your history teacher can give you baking tips. Branson teachers ignite curiosity that lasts a lifetime.

Engaged

Interconnected
