Mater Brighton Lakes Academy (MBLA) open in Osceola County in 2015, making it Mater’s first school outside of Miami-Dade County. MBLA prepares students for college through a rigorous curriculum with an enhanced focus on Project Lead the Way’s STEM curriculum, Robotics, and a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support System (PBIS) Character Education program.

Leading the school is Carmen Cangemi, who began her administrative career as an Assistant Principal at Mater Academy Middle/High School in Hialeah, Florida in 2005.

MBLA expects to grow along with its new community and will add a grade annually until reaching full capacity as a K-8 which will serve 1,170 students.
