Brookfield Schools

  • Brookfield Schools provides services at three schools. Brookfield Academy serves students in grades 9-12, Brookfield Elementary serves Students K-8 and our Transition to College program serves juniors and seniors. Brookfield staff assists students who are experiencing special emotional/behavioral issues that interfere with their learning in the regular public school system.
  • The educational component of Brookfield Schools is designed to provide an intensive and grade-level, academic curriculum with a successful model for therapeutic services and socialization opportunities that promotes each student`s academic success.
  • Our priority is to facilitate the learning process. Additionally, we hope each Brookfield student will transition with an increased awareness of appropriate social behavior, greater self-esteem, and more positive social interactions.
