Empowering students with complex learning disabilities to recognize and optimize their full potential.
Since 1982, families of adolescents and young adults with complex learning disabilities across the United States and in several other countries have known Brehm Preparatory School as the place where their son or daughter learned how to learn. Brehm provides a holistic education  integrates the academic, social, and emotional needs of students. Brehm offers a family-style environment designed to foster independence and responsibility. Brehm School is a small, fully accredited, not-for-profit coeducational boarding school with a staff of 150. We limit our focus to 90 students a year. Since 1982, in partnership with families just like yours, Brehm has been successfully teaching students with language-based and complex learning disabilities to “learn how to learn.” Our “family style” 24/7 school is uniquely designed to foster independence and responsibility. Where other schools have failed students, Brehm delivers success.
