Why Bridges?

The Bridges Academy model creates a nurturing environment with the conviction that making connections defines the creative learning process.  The whole community-teachers, students, and parents, become the bridges that link life and learning and provide a deeper understanding of the concepts, patterns, and principles that are the foundation of knowledge in our world.  All students should be provided with an opportunity to reach their maximum potential.


Bridges Academy empowers our teachers to provide innovative, high-quality instruction and gives them the autonomy to design a classroom that fits their students’ needs. Bridges is a smaller school with fewer students per class and this allows our students to get more one-on-one instruction than what is typically available in a traditional classroom.
