Rancho Santa Fe student graduates with honors


Courtland Reed, from Rancho Santa Fe, graduated with High Honors from Brehm Preparatory School in Illinois.

Reed admits he has several pretty significant learning disabilities that were making learning difficult for him. In fact, while at the Roger Rowe Elementary School, Reed and his parents were told he would never graduate from high school.

After attending The Winston School in Del Mar for 9th & 10th grades, he decided to go to boarding school to avail himself of opportunities not easily found at the smaller schools here in San Diego

Brehm Prep is a small, private co-educational boarding school with a mission to empower students with complex learning disabilities to recognize and reach their full potential. Said Reed, “I made a lot of progress at Brehm, specifically in government, math and literature. I want to thank my parents for believing in me and for the support they have given me throughout my life.”

Courtland was accepted at all his college choices and will start in the fall at Mitchell College in New London, Conn.
