Introducing BrightFish Reading

A proven research-based reading program that advances reading 2.5 grade levels in only 15 minutes a day

Good academic performance in reading is essential in maximizing a student’s full potential. 

BrightFish is structured in a sequential order from basic vocabulary to more challenging comprehension activities. Our material is designed so that students learn in incremental steps. Students begin with content at the level with which they are most comfortable, receiving motivation and gaining confidence as they progress. Our self-learning protocols train students to think for themselves and rely on their own judgement in order to make decisions.

BrightFish Reading is the premier method of supplemental reading instruction in schools across North America. Currently, over 5,000 students every day are improving their reading with BrightFish.

With the national emphasis on education and reading, the time for BrightFish is now.

            BrightFish inspires me to read. Reading makes me a better person. Some of the stories have taught me information that I did not know, and it has increased my vocabulary a lot. I would like to thank the people who created the program. My year has been pretty great and fun!
