THE BRIDGES DIFFERENCE
Character . Confidence . Knowledge
The Bridges Academy is more than just an Academy of learning. Here at Bridges we are a community. Our community comes together to develop an atmosphere of high learning where each child is able to reach their own unique potential. This community also creates a special space that develops a child’s intrinsic worth, building confidence and true character. This is the Bridges Difference.
Our Vibrant Community
Our student body is diverse to represent the real world and give children the opportunity to learn from each other’s ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds.
Bridges provides an academically accelerated curriculum in a nurturing environment with a teaching staff dedicated to preparing students for life in an interdependent world.
Our K-8 program is world class, tracking students individually through academically accelerated programs that include Mandarin and French, robotics, music, arts, theater, science, mathematics and advanced reading skills.
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 goal is to offer a nurturing environment with an outstanding teaching staff, dedicated to preparing students for life in an interdependent world.
