School Update, COVID-19 Response
During school closures, Brightmont Academy students are receiving one-to-one online instruction for all our programs including full-time, courses for credit, tutoring, and skill-building. Our experienced teachers are using an online curriculum and platform to ensure students continue learning during the coronavirus pandemic.
We are prepared to support new families who need academic support. Don't let your child fall behind during school closures. We recommend our one-to-one online tutoring which helps students maximize learning gains and maintain a learning routine in an uncertain time.
We are waiving the $200 Standard Enrollment Fee for new families who enroll between March 18, 2020-April 30, 2020. This applies to all our programs.1:1 Online Tutoring
Take advantage of the one-to-one instruction that works. Our unique educational approach is based on 20 years of experience helping students in grades 6-12 succeed academically. At Brightmont Academy, we identify and support the needs of each student, whether they struggle with depression and/or anxiety, learning disabilities, health issues or other special needs.
Brightmont’s educational model is mastery-based, empowering students to actively engage in their studies at their own pace while being challenged and supported throughout the learning process. We offer a range of programs throughout the year including full-time school, individual courses, tutoring, skill-building programs, and summer school. We offer open enrollment so you can start right away.
