Our Educational Philosophy

Bridges AcademyAt Bridges we believe the learning process is a collaborative one among teachers, staff, parents and students. We are committed to partnering with parents to build a passion for learning. We believe that each child is talented, deserves to be cherished as an individual and possesses limitless potential to reach his/her academic goals. Our teachers and staff work tirelessly to develop a curriculum that allows children to learn at their own pace; cultivating a sense of independence, responsibility and achievement. We believe it is our job to instruct students in the fundamentals of math, language arts, social studies, science and art; however, we also embrace the values associated with respect, gratitude, courage and honor.

Bridges provides an academic environment that celebrates each child’s uniqueness and allows them freedom within limits. Bridges uses an interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to capitalize on each child’s abilities, aptitude and imagination.
