The Bridge Academy is a fee-based program. Students enrolled in programs at The Bridge Academy receive one-on-one counseling from on-staff case managers. Our on-staff case managers help students:

  • Outline goals
  • Address barriers to learning
  • Receive educational and financial-aid advisement for postsecondary placement and support, job/career training skills, and leadership development training—all in addition to educational services that lead to an accredited high school diploma.

    TBA is a 4-day a week program. Students interested in the HS program must have at least 12 credits, including one credit in each of the core areas: Math, Science, and Language Arts. Upon the successful completion of 23 credits, students receive their high school diplomas.

    This is a 6-12 month program that assists youth from 16-24 years of age with the completion of a secondary certificate.

    Allows students enrolled in traditional schools to recover credit from a failed class. Most core courses, with the exception of math, and several electives are offered. This is a computer-based, independent-study program and students must be able to work on their own with minimal teacher instruction.
