Why does the world need Brandon Hall? What makes Brandon Hall a special place for you? Brandon Hall School is a special place for not only the students who attend the school, but for anyone else who is a part of the community. The small community that Brandon Hall has brings a lot of energy. Every student who is at Brandon Hall has at least one strong connection to a faculty or staff member, and these connections that are made go a long way while at the school—with this connection, a student can talk to someone who they can trust.

These two special things about Brandon Hall cannot be found anywhere else at a school in the United States or World.
