TEACHING & LEARNING IN THE AGE OF NEURODIVERISTY.
Bridges Academy is an independent college preparatory school (Grades 4-12) for gifted students who learn differently. Our students are a diverse group of bright, curious explorers with a wide range of strengths and interests.
Since 1995 we have been meeting the needs of complex, neurodiverse learners through innovative programs that unlock and develop potential. Our goal is to help students discover the world and develop the skills and confidence necessary to become the architects of their own lives.
We promote 21st century skills, provide a broad arts and sciences foundation, and create opportunities for in-depth study and development of expertise in interest areas. Our dynamic educational ecosystem interconnects intellectual, academic, creative, and personal growth in a vibrant and supportive community.
With creative teachers, like-minded peers, varied pedagogical approaches and engaging learning experiences, a day in the life of a Bridges student is challenging, social, relevant, and fun. Whether exploring bio-mimicry or anthropology, exo-politics or music composition, Bridges students have abundant opportunities to find and develop their passions.
“Students come to Bridges defined by their challenges and labels,” says Head of School Carl Sabatino. “They leave defined by their abilities and accomplishments.”
