About Us

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope."
- Helen Keller

 

The ƵAPP-BrightSide Academy (ƵAPP-BSA) is the development center of Treston International College for teens and young adults on the autism spectrum.

We are partnered with Our Lady of Pilar Montessori Center (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 ƵAPP Health Club is home to licensed physical therapists and certified adaptive special needs coaches who conduct fun activities for physical fitness.

At ƵAPP-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 ƵAPP-BrightSide Academy, we help families experience a brighter side of life, beyond academics.

"Take a little happiness with you wherever you go."

Starting with our Chief Happiness Officer to our program director, learning managers, mentors and specialists, BrightSide Academy is filled with a team of happy people whose mission in life is to make others happy.

The Art of Kindness

"Every act of kindness is a piece of love we leave behind."
– Paul Williams

BrightSide Academy combines gentle teaching with a behavioral approach to help learners reach their full potential while keeping in mind that kindness above all matters for the teacher and the student to effectively achieve the learning goals.

With a bright future as our ultimate goal for each child, we will do whatever works best for the learner to grow and succeed in his area of interest, no matter how long it takes and for as long as we have the full support of the learner’s family in this exciting and fulfilling journey.
