The strategic plan of BRAINATION is to serve at-risk students with exceptional and exemplary educational resources. We provide an environment that encourages students to develop their intellectual, linguistic, social, emotional, civic, and physical abilities. The ultimate goal is to transition and integrate these students back into their home schools and society and to ensure they are capable of full participation in the process of family, employment, and community.

In addition to the mandatory Texas courses for credit, which we offer, there is also a common theme of character development, personal and social responsibility, vocational discovery, personal economic and financial responsibility, civic and community involvement, technology literacy, and reading improvement.
