Offering a Nontraditional Environment for Learners

Brevard Private Academy was founded in 2000 by Cheree Shaykhian. She had a vision to better serve the youth in her community. Cheree realized there weren’t many options for students aside from the public school sector. The Academy was opened to give all students the opportunity to excel in a non-traditional educational environment where individual success was the primary focus. Now, years later, Brevard Private Academy is thriving and has helped thousands of students graduate high school with a promising pathway of opportunity. 

Brevard Private Academy is family owned and operated. Her daughter, Laila Shaykhian, admired her entrepreneurship so greatly that she joined the BPA company to follow in her footsteps. Brevard Private Academy is and will always provide a family-oriented environment and will continue to proudly serve the needs of all students who come to the Academy. Welcome to our family!
