Our Purpose: Here at Bridge Academy we are committed to providing our students with the opportunity to engage with individuals within our community who have overcome adversities and learned to be resilient. We are dedicated to showing our students that they can be successful throughout life if they implement the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. One of our goals is to also educate our students about different career paths that they can choose so that they can begin to think about their future past high school. Thank you for volunteering your time to speak with our students.
