An Exceptional Program for Exceptional Students
We offer an unparalleled academic program, individual interest projects, and positive social community for 7th-12th grade students with gifts of high ability and potential along with learning differences which makes them “twice exceptional” (2e) learners. We believe every child deserves the opportunity to succeed.
Twice Exceptional (2e) learners are those who have two exceptionalities (2e); giftedness and learning differences. Giftedness can be hidden by learning differences and learning differences can be hidden by giftedness. Until recently, the awareness and training to address both has been rare. These students find most school settings highly frustrating because the way they learn is mismatched to the school’s instructional approach, social environment, and curriculum.
About Brighthouse Learning Center
Brighthouse Learning Center is known for its warmth and inviting home-like environment in which to educate students with great potential. These students have struggled in other settings to find support for academic and social success. We establish trusting relationships, a strong academic foundation while fostering passions to reveal the extraordinary value and potential of this growing group of students.
We serve students with high functioning ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s, PDD/NOS, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and other learning differences (including those not yet diagnosed). Even though these students are highly intelligent or highly talented, they do not excel in regular classrooms, gifted programs, or programs for those with learning disabilities. At Brighthouse, these students flourish.
