In Graduate Success
No school prepares students better for secondary school, college, and life.
We welcome expectations. Then take them higher. Yes, our secondary school placement record is exceptional. But there’s so much more to what our students and alumni do.
Our rigorous academics and innovative educational approaches take children further.
Meadowbrook alumni are valedictorians, varsity team captains, service leaders, and award-winning artists and writers.
As a senior at Concord Academy, Sydney Kim ’14 was awarded the 2018 Wesleyan University Hamilton Prize for Creativity, a four-year full-tuition scholarship. Her short-story submission was chosen from more than 550 entries by a committee of Wesleyan alumni chaired by Hamilton’s writer and original Broadway star.
In 2017, The Boston Globe named several alumni All League in their sports: Ellie Lachenauer ’13 (basketball, Milton), Aidan Porter ’14 (hockey, Rivers), Karenna Groff ’14 (basketball, Weston), and Jared Groff ’13 (basketball, Weston). Jared was captain of the team and a 1000-point scorer. Karenna also plays soccer and helped the USA Juniors Soccer Team win gold at the 2017 Maccabiah Games in Israel.
Megane Bantefa ’15 is president of the African Students Union, co-president of the Spanish Club, a dorm proctor, a member of the Afro-Caribbean dance group, and a peer tutor at Andover.
College and Beyond
Meadowbrook has been graduating incredible young people for more than 90 years. Our alumni go on to become scholarship winners, entrepreneurs, performers, student leaders, and varsity athletes at top colleges and universities.
Today they're advancing medical research, starting companies, playing music professionally, doing service work in developing countries, and more.
Elizabeth Duserick ’12 was recruited from Andover to Yale’s varsity rowing team. At Yale, she has also interned on the technology team at the Center for Emotional Intelligence, where she helped develop a social-emotional online learning platform. “I had never considered boarding school or thought of myself as a STEM person, but Meadowbrook taught me to seek challenges and lean into them. I learned that I can do anything if I love what I’m doing!”
Jamie Burch ’97 is a graduate of Princeton Law School and is policy director for the Anti Police-Terror Project in Oakland, California, a grassroots effort to eradicate police terror in communities of color. He also works to help the homeless and was policy consultant for the Cat Brooks for Oakland mayoral campaign.
Jerome Tse ’05 has achieved national success with his plant-based sports drink company, Berri Pro. “Transparency and integrity are the most important core values in the food and beverage industry, and these are the types of values that were instilled at an early age at Meadowbrook.”
99% of Meadowbrook students score above the national average on secondary school entrance exams.
8 out of 8 Ivy League schools currently enroll Meadowbrook alumni.
One of the best aspects of Meadowbrook was that nothing was easy, but it was always a safe environment to try and to fail. I’m glad it was challenging.
