Description: Brehm School is a fully-accredited, non-profit college preparatory boarding school. It keeps its student population low, with only a total of 90 students enrolled each year. Since 1982, Brehm has successfully partnered with parents in teaching students with diagnosed language-based learning disabilities and learning differences as well as ADD/ADHD. This family-style school aims to teach children to "learn how to learn", teach them independence and encourage them to gain a sense of personal responsibility. The school has 29 years of experience with learning disabilities education.

Brehm Preparatory School has a good track record of helping students apply and qualify for college and go on to become productive and successful men and women.

Brehm's small and family-like environment provides a positive experience for their students. The staff also provides individualized care and support for students even after the academic day is finished. This is particularly good for students who have ADHD/ADD and frequently need to be reminded to take their medication. Tutoring is also available upon request of parents or as needed.

Brehm's staff is also specifically trained to help students who have nonverbal learning disabilities. The great thing about Brehm is that teachers continuously undergo training so that the techniques and methods that they use are updated and improved whenever possible.

The learning disabilities that Brehm Preparatory School supports include students with dyslexia, aspergers, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dysphasia, and many others.
