Brightmont Academy, One-to-One Private Education

Located on the northeast corner of Shea and 70th in the Agua Caliente Plaza, Brightmont Academy offers one-to-one instruction that works to Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Mesa, Tempe, and surrounding communities. Our unique educational approach is based on 19 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, and tutoring, and skill-building programs. We offer open enrollment so you can start right away.

We support students with a wide range of learning challenges including those with Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESA).

Campus Highlights


We had a celebration at lunch for Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights that marks the beginning of the fiscal year in India. Three of our teachers whose families are from India talked with the kids at lunch about the history and meaning of the holiday, as well as shared traditional holiday treats. They also wore traditional clothing.


The teachers competed in a Halloween decorating contest by subject area. Their decorations had to somehow incorporate their subject area(s). For instance, the foreign language teachers put together a display educating students about the traditions of the Day of the Dead and All Saints' Day. The English/Social Studies teachers made a display incorporating classic, spooky characters such as Frankenstein's monster and Edgar Allen Poe's raven. Students voted on Halloween for the winning hallway!

Students used their creative juices to give back to the community this past month by making Halloween greeting cards for Phoenix Children's Hospital.

Student Athletes
