"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope."
- Helen Keller
The Treston-BrightSide Academy (Treston-BSA) is the development center of Treston International College for teens and young adults on the autism spectrum.
We are partnered with Global Leaders International School (kinder to grade 10), and Treston International College (senior high school to college) for the delivery of academic courses, happiness tracks, and vocational programs in conjunction with the center’s special education programs and services.
Our partner clinic, Center for IDEAS, provides occupational and speech & language therapy for students while Treston Health Club is home to licensed physical therapists and certified adaptive special needs coaches who conduct fun activities for physical fitness.
At Treston-BrightSide Academy, we understand the importance of nurturing happy children. We believe that a happy child can bring happiness everywhere he goes – to his family, school, and community – and we are committed to working with both parents and students to create a bright future for them.
At Treston-BrightSide Academy, we help families experience a brighter side of life, beyond academics.
