Academic Enhancement Program


The Brooks County Schools Academic Enhancement Programs (AEP) is an option for students in grades 6-12, who may experience difficulty in the traditional setting. These students may require creative, innovative, and structured alternatives within a different educational setting.

The Brooks County Schools Academic Enhancement Programs was established to accommodate the educational and behavioral needs of students with opportunities to maintain or accelerate their current progress toward graduation. With a student-teacher ratio of 15:1, students are provided with computerized individualized instruction which allows instructional facilitators to guide students through the learning process. The AEP is open for student success Monday-Friday from 7:45 am to 3:00 pm. Transportation is provided.
