The facility stated on their homepage:

Bromley Brook School is a Recognized Independent School in the Department of Education in the State of Vermont. As such, our curriculum is approved by the State, facilitating appropriate credit transfer to other schools across the country. Our High School Diplomas are recognized by the State of Vermont.

Parents should however be aware that other states seems to have a higher standard regarding the level of education as the treads on fornits and Cafety informs of problems about using the school papers in their home state.

Communication

The family could communicate with their daughter by weekly phonecalls, letters or email. It is not clear at the time of operation whether these were monitored like it is standard by most AEG programs. The daughter was restricted from communicating with other than members of her old household until she had progressed far enough in the program.

The family could visit their daughter one time per months and during some activities. The daughter could also go on home visits 4 times per year, if she had progressed far enough in the program.
