Character, Confidence & Knowledge

The Bridges Academy lays the foundation for a lifetime of learning. Our nurturing faculty focus on the individual student and how best to ignite a love of learning. We offer an enriched and academically rigorous program that engages our students to think critically, be creative, and work together to learn and grow. We value our diverse community and strive to prepare our students to compete and thrive in this interdependent world with character, confidence, and knowledge. This is The Bridges Difference.

OUR PROGRAMS

Changing How We Learn

Learning goes beyond the standard curriculum; it is about helping our students become authentic learners who discover their unique talents and passions. Our students not only develop a strong foundation in the fundamental skills of reading, writing, and math, which sets the course for academic success, but through our enriched program they explore a wide variety of subjects to gain broader knowledge and to discover their unique interests.

The Early Childhood Program nurtures the development of a strong sense of self-discipline, motivation, empathy and a love of learning. 

 

Serving children from 3 to 5 years old, the Early Childhood Program centers around our youngest students, helping them transition into school with a fun and interactive program. 

In our Lower School programs, the curriculum is focused on hands-on, open-ended activities that develop children’s curiosity and problem-solving skills. Instruction is carefully sequenced to encourage skill consolidation and cross-curricular connections.

Throughout the program, students reflect upon and explain their thought processes and gain confidence in oral and written expression.    

Through an engaging, stimulating, and challenging curriculum that accelerates intellectual, physical, and social growth, the Middle School (grades 5–8) builds upon the solid foundation begun in the Lower School.

Our students are accepted into the most desired day and boarding secondary schools and ultimately into the finest colleges and universities.

"The Bridges Academy has been an amazing experience for my daughter.  The teachers and School administrators are amazing.  They are dedicated, caring, and challenging,  Overall we're very pleased and look forward in continuing education at Bridges Academy."
