Bromley Brook School is an Aspen Education Group program.  Thomas J. Croke, Educational Consultant, has denounced Aspen Education Group for putting profits over the safety and care of children in Aspen programs.
HEAL has reviewed multiple Aspen Education Group contracts that appear to be illusory, unconscionable, void/voidable, and arguably illegal.  We are in the process of reviewing the enrollment materials for Bromley Brook School.  In the meantime, please see the reviews for Adirondack Leadership Expeditions, Aspen Achievement Academy, Aspen Ranch, Aspen Institute of Behavioral Assessment, and New Leaf Academy.  It is our suggestion that families avoid doing business with Aspen Education Group and/or their individual programs.
Former teacher pleads guilty in teen sex case--April 9th, 2010 (Bromley Brook School)--MANCHESTER – A former educator at the Bromley Brook School pleaded guilty on Wednesday to having sexual contact with a 16-year-old student at the school on three occasions between Sept. 1 and Oct. 14.

Stephen F. Peters, 40, of Woodford, pleaded guilty in Bennington District Court to three misdemeanor charges of sexual exploitation of a minor. The state dismissed a felony charge of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child that had been brought in December.

Bennington County State's Attorney Christina Rainville said the state had dismissed the charge because her office's investigators believed that while the student was credible, the incident did not constitute a criminal act. The lewd and lascivious conduct charge involved a different student who was 12 when she spoke to police.

Under a plea agreement, Peters is expected to serve six to 12 months in prison on each count with the sentences to be served consecutively, but the prison time will be suspended. Instead, Peters is expected to serve five years on probation under sex offender conditions and undergo sex offender treatment.  For complete story,

Bromley Brook will shut down when school year ends--March 25th, 2011 (Source: manchesterjournal.com) MANCHESTER -- A private therapeutic boarding school for girls will close this summer after as its parent company looks to cut back programs to match faltering demand, impacting about 45 local jobs. The Aspen Education Group announced Thursday that the Bromley Brook School and four others around the country will close by July. Bromley Brook in Manchester is for girls "who have difficulty finding success in a traditional school setting," according to its Website. Students follow individual learning plans that focus on education, self-awareness and family relationships... In addition to Bromley Brook, the New Leaf Academy and the NorthStar Center in Oregon, as well as the Aspen Ranch and SunHawk Adolescent Recovery Center in Utah, are set to close.
