Brooklyn Independent
All Are Welcome Here

Who We Are

Brooklyn Independent is redefining the private school education experience. 


With sliding-scale tuition and intentional equity and inclusion practices, we interrupt New York City’s segregated schooling crisis during the pivotal middle school years. In service of a life lived to the fullest potential, we are committed to increasing educational access and opportunity to high school and beyond by providing an exceptional education that centers adolescent minds, hearts and voices.


We believe diverse and equitable environments make us better, smarter, and stronger.

Our Values



We learn courageously. We strive for growth, not perfection. We believe in ourselves and each other. We give it our all.​



We value joy. We believe that happiness is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others. We follow our passions.

We stand up for what’s right. We know that everything we do has the potential to influence others. We lift each other up.
