Meet Head of School Dr. Craig Gemmell

Students know Craig as an approachable and compassionate Head of School (or “HOS”). On a typical day you can see him out and about on campus, meeting with students to talk about college, to exchange ideas about student life, and most often, just to listen.

You can take advantage of the opportunity to get to know Craig by reaching out. The best way to connect is through email at He looks forward to hearing from you!

Come on in and meet the admission team!

We know that this has been a challenging year to apply to schools. Visiting campuses and working in person has been restricted for many of you.
 We missed seeing students and families in person too!

Take this fun video tour of our Admission headquarters (with the best view in New England). Until we get to welcome you and say it in person: Congratulations!

Living in Wolfeboro

Wolfeboro is renowned as the “Oldest Summer Resort in America,” and Brewster students get to enjoy its charming downtown and lakeside location year round. As you’ll see in the video, campus is just steps away from grocery and drug stores, ice cream stands, bakeries, gift shops, coffee bars, and great restaurants where students can stroll and have fun with friends—there is always something to do!

For outdoor enthusiasts, Wolfeboro has bike paths at Sewall Woods and the Cotton Valley Rail-Trail just a short walk away. For those who seek elevation, Cathedral Ledge and Mount Major are short drives, and climbers and hikers of all levels can enjoy them on weekend outings or through our Outdoor Skills program. You don’t even have to leave campus to enjoy pristine Lake Winnipesaukee, the state’s largest lake: Brewster’s campus has a half mile waterfront with two beaches and a beautiful boathouse. Being in central New Hampshire gives our community easy access to the White Mountains, ski resorts, the seacoast town Portsmouth (just an hour away), and a lot more.

Take a closer look at campus through our 360° virtual tour here.
