 welcome to our amazing school!

皇冠hg0088全讯brandon hall is atlanta’s only co-educational, college preparatory, international day and boarding school. it is my privilege to invite you to come experience a school unlike any other. i have been working in admissions with independent schools in america and internationally since 2012. however, i’ve never experienced a learning environment like this one. we are a creative and dynamic college prep school that happens to be surrounded by a beautiful wooded nature preserve, deer, the chattahoochee river, and the warm feel of family. diversity is not just welcomed, it is what makes this school so unique. we are developing international citizens by the design of our campus and the broad scope of our curriculum. not only are our students gaining the knowledge necessary for success in life, they are also learning how to lead. 

皇冠hg0088全讯all of my life, i’ve been surrounded by international people, cultures, and languages. it was natural for my own family (my husband, myself, and our two children) to move to southeast asia in 2007 and stay until 2014. we lived in bangkok, thailand where we attended language school, worked with the urban poor for community transformation, and i was the director of admissions for a jk-12 international school. i also engaged with embassies, consulates, and international businesses to build bridges between students and their future opportunities. i cherished my time as a “foreigner”. it humbled me and gave me more compassion and respect for students who cross cultures to attend school in a new country. 

i support independent education and our amazing teachers who pour themselves into our students daily. at the very heart of my heart is the student. every decision we make as school leaders and educators must be for the student. as a mom, i want that for my children. my daughter is a junior at brandon hall and has never been more excited about her education. as a director of admissions, i feel the gravity of what it means to connect students with our school. there is nothing that excites me more than walking alongside our families as their children find their path and lead the way for others. every child is made perfectly, and our job is to encourage them, fan that spark of learning into a flame, and support the parents along the way. together, we have the privilege to speak hope, determination, and creativity into the hearts and minds of the future. 

i invite you to come for a tour and experience atlanta’s best-kept secret.
