At 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.
