The Browning School was founded as a college preparatory school for boys in 1888 by John A. Browning. A traditional curriculum helps support boys intellectually, physically, and emotionally from Pre-Primary (Kindergarten) through Form VI (12th Grade). Located in the heart of New York City's Upper East Side, The Browning School makes use of the city’s vast resources.

The Browning School is a member of the New York Interschool, a consortium of eight private NYC schools: Brearley, Browning, Chapin, Collegiate, Dalton, Nightingale-Bamford, Spence, and Trinity. Interschool offers opportunities for academic sharing, extracurricular participation in the arts, and social activities for boys and girls. Also, Browning often undertakes special programs with schools such as Hewitt, Marymount, and Sacred Heart.

The school is under the headship of its fifth headmaster, Stephen M. Clement III.

One of the first students, John D. Rockefeller Jr., recalled Mr. Browning as a remarkable teacher who "inspired interest in learning", and that he "helped me to study and to concentrate.... I owe a great deal to him, more than to any other teacher I ever had." Fact|date=February 2007
