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 21 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, 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).
Contact Campus Director Sarah Horton to learn more about Brightmont’s one-to-one instructional model. Understanding how important success in learning is for each student and family, she will work together with you to create a customized learning plan and choose teachers who will best motivate and support your child.
We are hosting an open house Thursday, December 16, 2021 9am-4pm. Take a tour of our campus and meet with Campus Director Sarah Horton to learn how one-to-one instruction is helping students meet academic gains.
