I wanted to let everyone know, my son graduated with Brevard Private Academy June 07,2014 with a 4.0 GPA a bright future scholarship and scholarship to UF..he started BPA in Aug of 2012 and excelled going to BCC with the dual enrollment program and maintaining a 4.0 GPA thru out the school years. This school provided the attention my son needed and deserved, there was never at one time when a teacher, guidance or anyone said no to his help. If you want your child to excel, trust me on this BPA will not fail your expectations. We love Ms. Cheree, she is a strong dedicated principal that devotes her time and affections to all the students, shes a tough cookie, but her life is our Warriors.

This school creates a lot of great opportunities and gives students the one on one attention that they thirst for in the average high school classroom.

I have to say my daughter was told at Public School in Merritt Island that she could not keep up with the other children in her class, and she was devastated, did not want to ever go back to school. I found Brevard Private Academy as I was driving and stopped in and it has trully changed our life. My daughter loves going to school and I must brag, she was accepted to FSU, as I am a gator mom, but now I will be proud to be a Noles!!!!!!! Thank You Brevard Private Academy and Ms. Cheree you are the greatest person I have ever met and the hardest working lady to make sure our children succeed....God Bless

Brevard Private Academy is the best school in Merritt Island, if you want teachers who really care about your child, this is the place. I am a teacher myself in Public School so I know good teaching when I see it. I enrolled my son 2009, he is now attending UCF (Go Knights) in Orlando in Business. I just can''t thank the teachers as well as the staff enough for caring about my son and making sure he stayed on track and trust me Ms. Cheree ( Principal) and Coach will teach your child respect and point them in the direction they should be. We love BPA !!!!!!!

My son was having so many problems in public school, he started BPA 2 years ago and now he is a GATOR boy,he would have never been able to do what he is doing without the help all the teachers and Ms. Cheree gave him. I promise you, your child will be a college bound student when he or she graduates with BPA..
