Bridges Academy is a school serving students in Grades 4 through 12 with learning differences who are amazingly bright, outside-the-box thinkers, capable of developing expertise at a very young age in wide-ranging fields, from robotics to religion, string theory to Sanskrit, politics to poetry. The school prepares students for the 21st century and its many opportunities, including university studies and artistic and entrepreneurial endeavors. The school, which is opening a second campus in Seattle in fall 2022, is a testament to the power of strengths-based 2e educational philosophy.
Bridges empowers students to thrive academically and socially through small classes and differentiated instruction, creating an environment in which gifts are recognized and developed, and learning differences and disabilities are accepted. Many students come to Bridges defined by their challenges but graduate defined by their strengths and talents.
