Holistic Education

The Way Your Child Learns Best

Your student—is embraced by a team of advisors and academic, clinical, student life staff who work together to empower students to achieve their full potential. Each child receives a thorough assessment of needs, strengths, and challenges, which results in an Individualized Holistic Education Plan(IHEP). This plan integrates academic, social, and emotional strategies into a comprehensive program designed around the way your child works best.

Each student is also assigned a personal advocate and mentor. These faculty advisors are experts with a deep understanding of each student’s history, strengths, challenges, and personality. Advisors coordinate school resources to support and guide students throughout their Brehm experience.

Our highly individual and uniquely holistic approach gives students the tools, skills, and confidence to become effective self-advocates and independent learners. They succeed in school, find fulfilling careers, and lead balanced multi-faceted lives.

Your child’s education isn’t only about academics. That’s why Brehm offers a holistic approach, integrating academic, social, and emotional strategies into a comprehensive program designed to educate the whole child.

Brehm educates the whole child. They really look at the students’ individual needs and teach them the way they learn best.
