Giving to Branson

We are optimistic about the future. We understand why generations of students, parents, and alumni have loved and continue to love this little paradise tucked into a picturesque valley in Ross.

The beating heart of the place is the energetic buzz of young people learning: learning to communicate well, learning to think deeply and critically, learning to become thoughtful, compassionate citizens, learning how to navigate the inevitable challenges they will encounter in their lives, and learning the importance of making meaningful contributions to one’s community.

You can shape the future by giving to Branson.

Branson has been nurturing and educating young people for close to a century. Although we are never content with our efforts and constantly seek to improve, we are confident that we provide the atmosphere, training, and habits of heart and mind that our students need to become excellent citizens of the world they will inherit.

Rather than explain to you in detail all you will find at Branson, I invite you to come in, get comfortable, and look around; observe our lively classes, and sit among our students and faculty as they make their way through the day; a day that is certain to be filled with laughter, debate, camaraderie, and a genuine joy of learning and growing with like-minded individuals.

Come in, look carefully and closely, and when you are done examining what we provide, I bet you’ll want to stay awhile.
