Mission Statement  

Our mission at the Classical Center at Brandenburg Middle School is to provide a quality education that empowers students to achieve their highest potential through an integrated curriculum and life-long learning.  We are committed to building high self-esteem and providing support to meet the needs of all students and staff through the involvement of our community members and parents. 


The Classical Center at Brandenburg Middle School aims to develop young scholars who understand that learning is a lifelong pursuit. We strive to prepare all students to reason critically, communicate clearly, collaborate effectively, and create passionately. We desire them to be honorable citizens who seek to improve their communities and the world rather than passively traveling along the road most followed. We aspire to cultivate the virtues of courage, resilience, and wisdom necessary for all students to succeed as contributing members of society.
