Our Vision
All Hands In.jpg



Our vision is that every student has access to an integrated network of community and family support that provides the skills and opportunities they need to realize their full potential.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help emotionally and intellectually challenged students develop the academic, emotional, and life skills they need to be successful in the world. 


Working in close partnership with schools, we find creative solutions to complex student needs in a safe, community-based educational environment, addressing each individual’s unique developmental requirements through a comprehensive, whole-person approach.


— Parent of former student

"BREC met and exceeded my expectations when dealing with my sons unique educational needs.


Through the years we had tried public school, private schools and even homeschooling. It wasn't until he became a student at BREC that I began to see remarkable changes in his academics, and more importantly, his social and emotional behavior.


Without the caring, patient, supportive staff at BREC, graduating from high school would have been nearly impossible."
