    The Brighton School is now participating in the ACE Scholarship Program.  This is a scholarship based on need and those who qualify get the same amount of funds toward the tuition of a non-public school.  We hope this will provide an opportunity for families who need our services, but need some financial support.  A student must be entering Kindergarten or moving from the public setting to Brighton.
