|Bridges opened on September, 2013 as a fully-independent, federally recognized not-for-profit, offering Preschool through 8th grade, an “all-through” school with no need to change schools at various grade points.
Bridges provides an academically accelerated curriculum in a nurturing environment with a teaching staff dedicated to preparing students for life in an interdependent world. Pre-School years are the formative learning period in a child’s life, where children grow on many levels and Bridges prepares a child for a lifetime of learning with small class sizes and a curriculum shaped to individual needs. Our K-8 program is world class, tracking students individually through academically accelerated programs that include Mandarin and French language, Robotics, music, arts, theater, science, mathematics and advanced reading skills.
Bridges Partners with NYIT on innovative Computer Programming Projects.
The Academy is strengthening its STEM programs through the partnership with NYIT. Students will work with the graduate students at NYIT on various programming and research work using Rasberry PIs.
The Academy is also participating in the White House Computer Science for All. This program ensures progress on expanding Computer Science Education in participating schools. In US, only a quarter of schools offer a CS course with programming included. The Academy has submitted its increased commitments to the program and has had tremendous progress toward its goals.
The Green House Program being expanded and fully integrated.
