Sidney Brooks was born in Harwich in 1813. He was educated at Phillips Academy in Andover, and went to Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts. After graduation, he taught at Chatham Academy. In 1843 he began plans to establish a private academy in Harwich. There was no public higher education beyond the elementary level in place at that time.
The school was to be built in a pine grove opposite the First Congregational Church. The architect for the project was Sidney’s cousin, Luther Gifford.
