A personalized, dual language, classical school for your child

Brillante Academy is on a mission to help your child grow into a person 
of good character and spirit, and to be prepared for excellence in high school, college, and beyond.

A new approach to nurture the whole child

Deep Family Involvement

You, as parents, are the first educators of your children. From input on school start-up and design, to varied and regular opportunities to engage, you are integral to your children's success.

Two-Way, Dual Language Immersion

No matter the language spoken at home, each student will be bilingual in English and Spanish by 5th grade.

Classical Plus Education

Our approach also goes beyond the content as students are engaged intellectually through intentional questioning in a Socratic style.

Personalized
Learning

We combine teacher-led, small group instruction with adaptive technology to support personalized growth driven by data.

Lead with
Character

Good character makes for a meaningful life and produces lasting happiness. As a result, the development of moral virtue in the children and adults we serve is a central part of our mission.

Our minds are brilliant. Our bones are strong. Our spirits are alive!
