Bright Futures Academy’s mission is to provide a safe, personalized, and data-driven learning environment for students with special needs, empowering them to develop positive social skills and independent living skills necessary to transition into a less restrictive educational setting or into adulthood after completing high school.
Certified as a nonpublic school by the California Department of Education, Bright Futures Academy employs a variety of personnel to oversee and implement educational and behavioral programs in conjunction with local school districts, students, their families, and other social service agencies.
Bright Futures Academy places emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach and ongoing collaborative case management based on analysis of academic and behavioral data, and outcome measures.
We believe that every student has the ability to succeed academically, behaviorally and socially. However, success does not occur in a vacuum and is directly dependent on the efficacy of programs and services provided to each student. Therefore, we have continuous system of evaluating data and overall program effectiveness for each student.
Our system of program evaluation consists of soliciting feedback from parents/care providers and school districts; analyzing individual/academic and behavior data collected throughout each school day; completing frequent classroom observations; and maintaining student intake/drop data.
