Be a part of our beloved community.
Community life at Branson is student centered and student driven. Our students, faculty, and staff – as well as parents, families, and alumni – bring to our school a wealth and diversity of life experiences. Together, we cultivate a nurturing, vibrant learning community.
We strive to give our students a deep and confident sense of belonging, as we help each student cultivate their unique talents and reach their full potential. In turn, Branson students become leaders who enrich our entire community and the world with their ideas and perspective.
At Branson, we encourage you to show up as your authentic self. When you’re comfortable in your own skin, you can be empowered to step outside of your comfort zone and grow. It takes courage to lean into actions that teach you about yourself.
We are here to help you develop the confidence, will power, and moral compass to be brave. Because when you are brave, anything is possible.
When students have both the spaciousness and the support they need for the tremendous work of self-exploration and identity development of the teenage years, something beautiful happens: their authentic, joyful voices emerge. We live for this.

Have you ever wondered how to paint with words? Have you ever wished to express yourself, not only with your actions and voice, but with pen and paper? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you’ll want to learn more about the Branson immersive, Poetry as Activism!
Hours flew by in the crafts-focused immersive inside Branson’s sculpture studio: Textile Arts: Explore, Create, Sustain. “It was amazing to see how students lost track of time in their art,” laughed course instructor and math teacher Krista McKeague. “The day would end and they’d ask if they could stay longer. That doesn’t always happen in math class.”
