I attended Brenau for two years. I loved every minute of it. If it was not for Brenau, I would not be where I am today. A tutor for Brenau said ' It lacks parental involvement...,' but that is with any boarding school, and the teachers posed as our mothers. My mom not being there to cater to my every need is exactly what made me so independent and successful at Brenau. The teachers and house mothers are there as second moms, without replacing your real mom. My relationship with my mom grew better. I learned that everybody is family at Brenau. I still consider each and every person either a 'sister' or a 'second-mom.' There may be some rebellion with some of the girls, but that is in any school, and there are limits set and rules you must follow. The academics were great. We had a real advantage being next to the university.

I tutor at Brenau Academy. The academics are very extensive. The school lacks parent involvement since it is a resident school but it shows. The girls seem to be rebellious at times. But overall the school is good, a little pricey though. The dorms are small but clean. The grounds at Brenau are part of Brenau University so they are really nice and well keep up.

I attended this school last year and I find it a great school that prepares everyone for their education and will take them wherever the students dream wishes for them to go! Thanks Brenau for all of your help! Victoria Romigh

great college prep school. Teachers are interested in individual students strengths and weaknesses. Teachers contact parents when there are concerns. Wonderful behavior follow-throughs, kids who are behavior/alcohol/drug problems are not allowed to distract from those who are there to learn. Girls can take college classes with Brenau College on the same campus and become even better prepared for college. I would highly recommend this school to any parent! My daughter was more than ready for college, and has had no problems adjusting to her freshman year in college.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
