Brighton Academy is a private, non-profit, independent school serving Jackson and Josephine Counties in Southern Oregon. Registered as a private school with the state of Oregon and as an Oregon non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, Brighton was accredited in 2002 - 2003 by the Northwest Association of Schools and of Colleges and Universities and annually seeks renewal for full accreditation with Northwest Association of Accredited Schools.

Although the original school known as Evelyn Street School was established in 1985 to support a group of home-schooling parents, Brighton Academy was officially founded in 1990 with a move to its current location. In 1998 a major renovation of the campus was completed resulting in a new street front and additional classrooms. Recently, older classrooms have been remodeled. During its fifteen year history, Brighton Academy has built a reputation as an exceptional educational institution with a large percentage of its graduates achieving success in higher education or their chosen careers.
