Program areas at The Bridge Academy

Charter school - in 1997, the state of Connecticut granted permission for the formation of the charter school. Students are enrolled through an open lottery. For the first 9 years of existence, the school served students in grades 9 through 12 only. In 2006, the school expanded to include 7th and 8th grade students. There are 280 students total. The lottery for 7th grade is held in january every year. The bridge academy is successful in keeping students in school and focused on college. The daily attendance rates are over 90% and the percentage of students being accepted to college upon graduation is close to 100% every year. The bridge academy is the only bridgeport public school that enrolls students in 7th grade and serves them until they graduate. Since that time, the school has worked hard to research and experiment to find best practices.

Afterschool - programs are open to bridge academy students and provide students with positive outlets outside of the regular school day. The bridge academy has afterschool programs in basketball, boxing, dominoes, chess, poetry, dance, and fitness. Approximately 150 different bridge academy students take advantage of our afterschool programs.

Summer school - the program provides tutoring and credit recovery for approximately 100 students during the month of july. Students make up credit in failed classes as well as attend remediation programs in reading and mathematics. Students successfully completing summer school are promoted to the next grade.
