Mission & History

At Brightmont Academy, our mission is to provide customized one-to-one instruction to help as many students as possible reach their full academic potential and prepare for college and career.

Brightmont Academy was founded in 1999 by Ruth Wilson in Seattle, Washington. Since then, the organization has grown to offer one-to-one instruction in 15 campuses in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and Washington. Every day for 22 years, we have seen the positive results of this approach and we are proud to have helped nearly 4,000 students find their paths to becoming more confident and successful learners.
