APPLY TO THE BRIDGES ACADEMY

The Bridges Academy offers an unmatched academic and social foundation in which one year builds upon the next. Eighth graders get to lead, role model, and contribute to the community in ways that empower each of them. Project work starts as early as preschool and grows more sophisticated each year. And our small class sizes allow teachers to form close relationships with students and families—and to tailor instruction to the needs and interests of the individual. Best of all about The Bridges Academy, our students and families become part of a tight-knit community built around a shared love of learning. And that shared love of learning stays with our students for life.

The application process varies by grade. Below, you will find an overview of our application steps and requirements, plus application checklists by grade for download to help keep you organized throughout the admissions process.
