Core Academic Program

We are honored that you are exploring The Bridge School as a potential educational program for your child and family. The decision regarding how to best support your child’s education is among the most important a parent can make and we hope learning more about us through our website, classroom observation and Open House will help you decide whether our program is the right fit for you.

The Bridge School serves children ages 5-11 and we use age-based designations for our classes rather than grades. However, this translates loosely into serving Kindergarten through 6th Grade students. To enroll in The Bridge School Core Academic Program, a child must have reached five years of age by August 31st for the enrollment year.
