Learning becomes an adventure
June 20 – July 17, 2021

Our team has themed this year’s Summer Program as Little Egypt.

We are offering financial aid for the summer program. We encourage families who have experienced financial hardship, along with families who receive district funding or academic year tuition assistance to apply.

An Amazing Faculty & Staff

Brehm’s summer faculty are skilled educators, practiced in the art of engaging students in academic and experiential learning endeavors that inspire new levels of individual effort and personal growth. Specialized staff includes ASHA-certified, speech-language pathologists.

Accepting applications for summer 2021. To apply, please complete our online application today or call Kathy Dillard at (618) 457-0371.


Adventure and recreational activities enable students to have fun, develop balance in their social lives, grow culturally and emotionally, and gain self-esteem as they learn to plan and set goals and increase their awareness of leisure resources that help develop the whole person.


Academic curriculum targets skills in an experiential learning environment. Students rotate through remedial math, reading comprehension, writing, social pragmatics, and elective courses which vary to complement each year’s theme and accommodate individual student needs. Examples include arts, computer animation videography, yoga, and more!


Our holistic summer program is focused on improving interpersonal, collaborative, executive functioning, healthy living, and life skills. ASHA-certified, speech-language pathologists provide direct therapy and help students develop the skills that lead to more positive, productive, and satisfying interactions with their peers.
