I dropped out of school in '09 then I heard about Brittain academy in '14. I was skeptical at first but I gave it a try anyway. I never regret it since. I went to 2 years college for my medical assistant diploma and now have a better job. Now I'm thinking about going back to school for nursing. Is it possible? Thanks in advance.

I dropped out of high school back in 1991, I never thought I would be able to go to college. I found out about Britain Academy back in 2014 and thought I would give them a try, I received my high school diploma now I'm working on finishing up my bachelor's degree in nursing thank you Dr. Britain and the Britain staffing team I never could have gotten this far without you, I love you guys.

My son has been a student since he was in sixth grade in "public" school. The school he attended was so bad the state took control just prior to us moving him to Brittian Academy. He has since worked very hard to get to where he is now, high school level. I have read other parents reviews of the school, some good some bad, I cannot say that this is the way all children learn best but it's the way that seems to suit MY son best. I have read reviews that IMPLY that the school encourages less that ethical standards, it is a home school, the ethical standards start in the home and grow from there. I let my son do his work, at his speed, if he has questions he cannot answer then I direct him on possible places he can look to find them. While at Brittian Academy he has LEARNED not just to repeat answers he has been fed so he is able to pass a some standard test, but he is slowly learning how to find the answers to questions I never dreamed I would be asked, like, " Mom is it possible to clone body parts so that soldiers injured in war can be helped?" He does spend more time at his PS4, but I recently watched the a special on robotics on the Science channel where President Obama met a life like robot directed by a Xbox controller. As with all schools of all types, its all in what you give to the program that equals what you get from the program. Not dollars or test scores but the knowledge that you take with you the rest of your adult life.

I love Brittain Academy! Because of the school and it's staff I am now able to home-school my daughters and they are thriving!! Public school was not made for my family but Brittain Academy was. Thanks to Dr. Brittain and everyone there for giving me the options in education that I needed for my family!

What is a lab school? It's a K-12 school or school with some variation of those grades which is operated by a university or college.
