Brite Future Academy is the only school of this kind in Arizona at this time. We customize our programs to meet the needs of our students and families. We have taken the most effective pieces of many educational models and use each as needed to help our students. We are also open to homeschooling families, and offer unique opportunities for Part time programs, individual classes and projects, field trips, picture days, year book, science fairs, and a home away from home to fill in any gaps in homeschooling. Art classes, science classes... help with learning challenges, help finding ways to challenge gifted students, mentor programs and so much more. I also want to thank our wonderful parents for the great reviews. Just need to make one slight correction. Our Core Value is Respect. We feel that respect for self, others and our environment, covers most other character values we work to model and encourage in our students. Feel free to contact us at any time, to ask questions, schedule a tour or a trial day with your student(s). We would love to meet your family.

Posted May 20, 2013

My 10 yo daughter was only able to attend this school for a short time. My husband had to move for work, and now we are too far away. This is the only school she has ever looked forward to going to in the morning. She made more progress in the months she was there, than in the years at other schools here in Arizona. She is so smart, but just gets too bored in other classrooms. The only reason I gave the school a 4 instead of 5+ is because they do not have bus service for our side of town. They do help with carpooling program, but so far no one close enough to us that can carpool. When they get bus service out to the far east side I will change it to a 5. It also is a smaller school, which was nice.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
