Curriculum
Curriculum
At Brighton we run a literature based curriculum that beautifully ties history to literature at every turn. Singapore Math, Handwriting without Tears, Explode the Code, Sonlight.com and Alphaphonics are just a few of the programs we incorporate. By mixing in “hands on” activities we are able to strike a balance between learning and fun, creating a true discovery based academic learning environment. This comprehensive curriculum provides our school with a complete cohesive plan from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade.

Elementary School

ElementaryAt Brighton Academy, the Elementary School begins with Pre-Kindergarten and extends through the 5th grade. The basis of our program is outlined in this catalog. Unlike many schools, penmanship is considered an important subject at Brighton and starts in 2nd grade continuing throughout our elementary program.

A Physical Education program is part of each child’s education and begins in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten with a non-specific program. Beginning in the 1st grade, students participate in a structured Physical Education program incorporating the specific needs of each grade level. The program stresses not only physical fitness, but incorporates a basic understanding of nutrition and anatomy, as well as, the mental discipline of team sports.

The Elementary School curriculum offers Art and Science programs as supporting elements to our regular core subjects. Many art projects are tied to the students’ lessons in Social Studies and Science. Music in the primary grades may revolve around a particular holiday or assembly performance. A number of theatrical and musical events are open to the students each year. Other electives include Cooking, Ceramics, Art, Computer, Spanish and Archery.

The goal of Brighton Academy is to build a strong foundation for our elementary students in preparation for success in the Middle School.

Middle School

Middle SchoolAt Brighton Academy, our Middle School is grades 6, 7 and 8. Our Middle School is a preparatory program for High School, our early bird college program and our community service program.

In Middle School we introduce a group reading program split by gender. This allows both the girls and boys to openly discuss the multitude of books they read while strengthening their reading comprehension skills and vocabulary. We strongly emphasize writing in our middle school and require both skills and process writing practice.

We offer math classes to our middle school students by level, benefiting all students. Our remedial students are offered needed foundational strengthening, our at-level students move at a comfortable pace and our accelerated students are not held back.

In Middle School we offer an integrated science program that comes alive with hands on activities and experiments. Our annual IOWA testing regularly places Brighton students in the top percentile of the country.

Our elective programs include Video Production, Computers, Ceramics, Theatre, Cooking, Spanish, Dance and Music. We stress community involvement with our Interact Club, which is sponsored by the Rotary Club. This is a true application for leadership on both a local and an international level. Our community involvement allows our students to experience real life opportunities; whether on a community theatre’s stage, performing community service with a charity such as Habitat for Humanity or running an entrepreneurial venture.

High School


High SchoolAt Brighton Academy, our High School is grades 9 through 12. Our high school students must go through an interview process to make sure they are a fit with our program. All Brighton classes correspond with the New Oregon Diploma, meeting state standards. We are fully accredited through The Northwest Accreditation Commission.

In High School we continue to emphasize Literature and Writing, as well as, offer a well rounded, comprehensive History program. We offer math classes to our high school students by level, with courses in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus.

In our Science program we offer Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Our annual IOWA testing regularly places Brighton students in the top percentile of the country.

In High School we allow our students to earn a two year, university transferable degree (AAOT) that can be earned concurrently with their high school diploma. Unlike most high schools our students only take courses that apply to the AAOT. Our students take full college courses with college teachers but are guided by Brighton‘s support staff. Classes are held on our campus or on the community college campus with a group of Brighton students accompanied by a Brighton teacher. We believe this gives our students a competitive edge, whether it is to enroll at a university as a junior or simply using it as an impressive résumé addition that sets them apart from their peers.

Our elective programs include Physical Education, Computers, Ceramics, Theatre, Cooking, Spanish, Bowling, Student Teaching, Work Experience, Dance and Music. Our high school students run our Interact Club, which is sponsored by the Rotary Club, giving them leadership application on both a local and an international level. Our community involvement allows our students to experience real life opportunities; whether on a community theatre’s stage or community service by working with a charity such as Habitat for Humanity. We also provide opportunity for student entrepreneurial ventures, such as opening a booth at our local Growers’ Market, which we host on our campus, running the concession stand at one of our theatre performances, or using our campus café for fundraising.

The goal of Brighton Academy is to provide a solid academic foundation, build character while honing leadership skills for our high school students in preparation for success in life.
