From Brehm Preparatory School

Brehm is a small, fully accredited, not-for-profit coeducational boarding school for neurodiverse students in grades 6 through 12+. Brehm limits its focus to just 90 students in order to provide the attention and service each child deserves.

Brehm recognizes that each student is unique and must find his or her individual pathway to academic, social, and emotional success. Following a careful review of the student’s data and academic history, an Individualized Holistic Education Plan is designed around the way each student learns best. Other programs at Brehm include the Arrowsmith Program and a 4-week Summer Program.

Brehm also has a post-secondary school, OPTIONS Transitions to Independence, that offers instruction and assistance for students who need to further develop independent living, social, employment, and academic skills.

Brehm's Boarding Program

Brehm’s Boarding Program is a vital component in keeping up with Brehm’s holistic model. In keeping with our mission, our boarding program supports the whole student and focuses on their complete developments, so we are not only addressing the academics but also the social and emotional aspects that come with being a young adult with a learning disability.
