  • Braun Mission Statement

    Braun Educational Center utilizes positive behavior supports, individualized instruction, and a variety of therapeutic services to teach students the academic and social coping skills necessary to become productive members of society.



    Program Design

    Braun Educational Center is the therapeutic alternative program for SWCCCASE offering services for students experiencing social and emotional problems in school. The program is designed to provide students with the therapeutic supports and interventions they need to learn and find success in school. The Braun curriculum is aligned with Common Core standards and follows the courses taught in students’ home schools.

    Along with academic instruction, students learn the social skills required for building and maintaining satisfactory relationships, constructively solving problems, managing their physical and emotional health, securing employment, living independently and achieving other worthwhile goals. Staff are committed to work closely with parents, home schools and community agencies.
