The Bridge was created to “bridge” the gap between 4th– 8th grades and high school.
Students will meet with outstanding and dynamic tutors every Thursday. The goal is to prepare students for the routine and rigors of high school class work while learning, note taking, meeting deadlines, testing, doing science labs, and working with peers. Students will be given assignments to complete at home and turn in for a grade each week. Grades are not the focus at this stage but help to inform parents. Bridge courses are not intended to be “enrichment”, they are more like formal school with all of the expectations of homework and testing. This is the place to make mistakes and learn from them in a loving and Christian environment

Do I have to sign up for all the classes?
No, you just pick and choose which classes that you would like for your student to take for a maximum of four. There are multiple classes offered each of the time periods
Register for the subjects that you would like us to support you with or that you don’t feel comfortable teaching. The parent and student are responsible for making sure the student does their schoolwork during the week. The teacher presents the lessons and grades the student in an objective manner. Grades are available through the online grading program your tutor uses.. Homework assignments are emailed or posted on the grading program to the home so the parent is fully informed. This will help you transition your student into being independently accountable for their work.
The courses are identified for appropriate age range. You know best where your student will need to be placed, but please contact the tutor if needed. Tutor information is in the course descriptions packet.
