The Peter Clark Center for Teaching & Learning

The Peter Clark Center for Teaching & Learning is an innovative resource center dedicated to student success and providing world-class support to students, faculty, and parents. The Center transforms teaching and learning to enable all students and faculty to thrive and partners with parents to enable them to best support their children.

Our mission is to develop and realize each student’s unique talents and potential to excel.

We will serve our mission by creating a learning culture within Breck School that:

  • Fosters self-knowledge and self-advocacy among students.
  • Enriches and inspires faculty, through informed research and professional development, to cultivate student engagement and respond to unique learning pathways.
  • Engages parents and families, through an understanding of cognition, learning, and development, to play the most effective role in their child’s education.
