Investing in your child’s future.

Choosing a boarding school for your child represents a significant financial commitment. Brehm admissions staff can help direct you to available resources to help cover the costs of tuition and other expenses.

Some of our students receive full tuition reimbursement via their school districts under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA). Brehm is on the Illinois State Board of Education’s (ISBE) list of approved placements. For more information, contact your school district or School Board of Education and ask for a Parents Rights Handbook.
