One-to-One Private Education

Experience the Success

Located just north of the Happy Valley Towne Center, Brightmont Academy offers Deer Valley, North Phoenix, Glendale, Surprise, Peoria, Anthem, and surrounding communities one-to-one instruction that works.

Our unique educational approach is based on 17 years of experience helping students succeed academically. Enroll at any time of the year for full-time school, individual courses or tutoring. Learn about our summer school options.

Brightmont Academy supports students with a wide range of learning challenges including those with Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESA). In addition to academic instruction, the Deer Valley campus staff are skilled at providing practical studies for life and work applications, and can assist students with all transitional services. Executive function strategies and instruction are embedded into academic lessons and reinforced daily. For example, this campus has adopted school-wide use of planners, just one of the purposeful applications that includes family and school partnership and connects our one-to-one instruction to the student's home life.

Contact our experienced Deer Valley Campus Director, Judith Zenna-Valgento, to learn why Brightmont’s one-to-one instruction is the most effective instructional method. Using this research-based approach, she will work with you and your child to develop a personalized instruction plan customized for his or her learning goals, strengths, and needs.

Take an Inside Look

What do I like about Brightmont...For starters the teachers are so nice and always cheerful. They also even help me out if I don't understand something or know something. Even if it is their job to teach us students, they all teach different ways with each student for every subject. Even the students here are nice. The school even spends their own money to buy snacks for everyone in the school and that alone is awesome! That is what I like about Brightmont.
