  • Oregon Senator Endorsement:

  • "During a recent visit to the Lowell School District, I heard about what they are doing with their schools and particularly the Bridge Charter Academy. This is a dynamic and cutting-edge approach to education that is desperately needed. Of particular value is its focus in parent education and parent support. The personalized approach that they take is certain to have a significant impact on students and their families. I'm proud to have Lowell SD in my senate district."

    State Sen. Floyd Prozanski

  • Bridge Charter Mission:

    “To maximize parental involvement for students through personalized learning that is rigorous, adaptive, and motivating to produce college and vocational readiness.” Our mission is to take advantage of all available resources to give our children the best education possible.  The design and flexibility of our program allows for direct involvement by parents and the community. We believe strongly this observation from research at Columbia University, "Over 40 years of steadily accumulating evidence show that family involvement is one of the strongest predictors of children's school success...However, resources for and commitments to promoting meaningful family involvement have been few, weak, and inconsistent." (Campaign for Educational Equity, Teachers College, Columbia University).  Our teachers, administration, sponsor district, and school board are committed to this mission.  Enrolling in Bridge provides access to a culture that is technological, innovative, and academically rigorous to prepare students for college and career opportunities.

  • Every child is different and I love that Bridge Charter home based schooling allows him to move at a personalized pace for each subject. He also still gets classroom time with other children and his teacher each week! The teachers and staff at Bridge Charter are nothing less than amazing.
