Bridges Academy is a college preparatory school dedicated to educating twice-exceptional students (gifted students with learning differences) in Grades 4-12. We believe that a program designed around the strengths of students offers the best chance of ensuring student success. Bridges Academy provides a student-centered, talent- and strength-based model to optimize each student’s intellectual, academic, and social development.
Bridges Academy recognizes that the cognitive, psychological and physical needs of twice-exceptional students are often profoundly different from those of their neuro-typical peers. We understand that their asynchronous development does not always follow the same pattern as their non-twice-exceptional peers. We recognize that difficulties in one or more areas do not in any way preclude the existence or the enormity of their gifts and talents in other areas.
