Washington Square Academy’s Haunted Carnival & Fundraiser


Every year for the last 10 years, a local micro school in Brookline, Washington Square Academy (WSA), has celebrated Halloween with creativity and enthusiasm.

Like many years in the past, WSA and the students have created and built an escape room (from scratch) to share with the community.

In previous years, the school has built an entire pirate ship within a classroom or created an Egyptian’s tomb.

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2023, at the Brookline Teen Center, starting at 11:00 a.m.

Entrance fee: $20.

All the proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the Brookline Teen Center.


About Washington Square Academy

Washington Square Academy has its origins as a small after school program. From a living room table, we began teaching a handful of students. Throughout the 6 years of running a small after school program, we saw immense growth in all of our students. We saw a need for children to get academic support in small groups; and wanting to rise to that challenge, WSA was born.

Since being established two years ago, Washington Square Academy has become known for its rigorous honors curriculum; our standards of excellence have provided the impetus for us to grow into the school we are today.

As educators, we believe that a student’s needs always comes first – and that means exceptional education, exceptional support, exceptional rigor, and exceptional classroom engagement.
