A growth mindset and entrepreneurial spirit are part of our DNA at Brook Hill. Our Founder, Stephen Dement, not only grew his own business, but pioneered a new school. Brook Hill is still in that mindset today. We’re always asking ourselves, “What’s next? How can we be better than we were the day before?”

The Brook Hill School of Business is designed for students who are asking themselves those same questions – where they can chart a new course for their life. It is a place where students can not only explore their interests in business, but also earn college credit and learn through real-life experience in our Business Lab.

what is a business lab?


Brook Hill’s Business Lab is an innovative, hands-on learning environment for our business classes. Situated between our on-campus coffee shop and spirit store, the Business Lab enables students to utilize two real businesses to practice what they’re learning and get real life experience.

The balance sheet is no longer an imaginary spreadsheet with made-up numbers. Running a sale or marketing a new item are no longer fictitious projects. The Business Lab allows students to interact with real data and real businesses, helping them see the impact of their decisions in real time.

Plus, as a boarding school with students from over 30 countries, students are learning how to navigate the global business world with peers from a variety of cultures and perspectives.

There is no other business program in the area that offers this breadth of knowledge and depth of experience. Whether you’re just dabbling in business or already defining your path, we’ll help you find your passion and develop your potential.
