  • Our teachers do more than teach. They are life coaches invested in the long-term success of each student.
  • We offer a flexible curriculum built on students’ individual strengths and interests.
  • Small class sizes provide an intimate, nurturing learning experience.
  • Every opinion is valued in our conversational approach to learning. We encourage communication and ensure all students have the opportunity to join class discussions.
  • Students have access to Career and Transition Services and counseling support to help them envision and reach their goals after high school.
  • Our focus is not solely on academic achievement. We strive to foster the growth of the whole child and instill the qualities of leadership, self-esteem, and community.

Some students do well in a “traditional” school program. Others don’t. Maybe their school is “too big” or “impersonal.” Maybe “the other kids aren’t like me.” Or maybe “the teachers don’t like me.”

If you or your child is unhappy with your current school, if things aren’t working out, if grades are starting to slip, you should look at Brook Road Academy.
