Brook Road offers Middle School students a structured, challenging and individualized program designed to prepare them for high school. Students are given the opportunity to learn and refine the basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics.

Participation in interest groups is encouraged so those students will grow in independent thinking and develop analytical skills.

Upper school curriculum provides students with the opportunity to explore in depth topics in math, science, language, literature, history and the arts. Computer literacy is a requirement for graduation. Study skills are an important part of the school day. Teachers work with students to instill the idea that one needs self-discipline in order to become a good student.

Faculty at Brook Road Academy use a “conversational approach” in all of their interactions with students. The conversational approach is an intentional method of engaging students and helping them to develop better communication and decision-making skills. Learn more about the conversational approach.

A student’s IIP (Individualized Instructional Plan) is written when he or she first starts at the school and is updated annually.  It details the student’s strengths as well as their needs to successfully participate in the school environment and optimize their learning potential.  Students also set annual goals to reach during the given school year in addition to post secondary goals for the long term.

The curriculum is designed around the particular interests of the individual student and strives to assist each student in his or her effort to maximize individual potential while recognizing the needs for growth and development of the whole child.

We accept students for grades 7-12 and consider students who would be enrolling as seniors. Start the application process today.
