Rooted in the Past, Preparing Students for the Future.

Come for a visit!

In a world where vast stores of knowledge are available on one’s phone, students need to learn how to analyze new information, synthesize it with what they know, and form an independent viewpoint.  And with the ability to broadcast to the globe with just a few clicks, it’s imperative that they have a moral framework to guide them.

At Moses Brown, children learn to read with insight, speak persuasively, and write clearly.  It’s all grounded in the Quaker belief that every person matters.  Come see for yourself why after more than two centuries, Moses Brown is still leading the way.
