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 their 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. 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 when interacting with students to help them develop better communication and decision-making skills. Learn more about our conversational approach.

A student’s IIP (Individualized Instructional Plan) is developed with input from the student, advisor, and Head of Academy. Students create goals based on academic, social, and emotional needs and strengths. The IIP is tracked  and updated throughout the year.

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.
