     Brighton Academy is an early educational learning environment that takes a traditional approach to child development. We are a small, private facility that is designed to give your child individual attention while attending to all facets of your child's growth; intellectual and physical.


     A child who completes a three to five year cycle at Brighton Academy will be constantly challenged, and well prepared to enter elementary school. We use an advanced curriculum and provide a specialized prekindergarten program that is designed to keep children educated beyond state standards. Staff members are educated, CPR trained, and screened for criminal history and drug use. We take pride in the education and environment that we provide for our students.



     We utilize Appelbaum Training Institute Curriculum at our school. It is designed to educate children ages, 2-6. The curriculum is advanced, with the objective of preparing children for elementary school. All staff members have been trained by the Institute on a regular/ongoing basis to carry out the curriculum efficiently.

     Our prekindergarten program is based around the entrance standards of all area elementary schools and integrated with our daily Appelbaum curriculum. Upon graduation from Brighton Academy students are equipped with all educational and physical development skills required for success in their next educational level.
