My daughter graduated 4 years ago and it made all the difference in her life, and ours!  She is a mature, insightful, passionate woman and owes much to Carlbrook's staff.

We have had a great family experience at Carlbrook.  Our daughter will graduate this May.  She has gotten in to some excellent colleges/universities.  The school has been very supportive and has contributed to our daughter's maturation and increased self-awareness as well as involvement as a citizen in the world ahead of her.

Really enjoyed it.  It turned my life around, and five years after I graduated I still keep in touch with many of the faculty/board.  It's a weird place, but in a good way.
