“Training to be an Olympic gymnast means spending hours on practice without sacrificing my grades. Bridgeway Academy worked with me and my family to create a flexible homeschool schedule. That takes off a lot of pressure and my grades have never been better!”
Amber, 12th grade
An accredited homeschool academy means peace of mind that you, as a homeschool parent are making the right choice with your child’s future, whether you’re considering traditional home school methods for your elementary student or online courses for your high school student. Knowing that your child can go on to college or re-enter the public school system without having to step back a grade gives you freedom to focus on your child while we ensure a rewarding and accredited home school experience.
Fully Accredited Homeschool Academy
Bridgeway Academy is a fully accredited Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade homeschool academy enrolling students from all across the United States and around the world. Our accreditation proves that we uphold the highest academic standards. All of our homeschool programs are accredited.
In fact, 82% of our students have gone on to attend college far exceeding the national average. And our homeschooled students entering directly into the work force carry a real high school diploma with them.
Pennsylvania has very strict standards for homeschools, and by exceeding those standards year after year, a Bridgeway education is recognized in all other states and abroad. It also means students armed with an accredited Bridgeway diploma can receive scholarships, grants and financial aid when applying for college. We make it possible to earn a high school diploma. Obtain a high school diploma regardless of age. See our Adult High School Diploma Program.
AdvancED is the unified organization of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). AdvancED is dedicated to advancing excellence in education worldwide through accreditation, research, and professional services.
NCA CASI and SACS CASI schools share a unified, clear and powerful accreditation process designed to help schools continuously improve.
AdvancED creates the world’s largest education community, representing 27,000 public and private schools and districts across the United States and in 65 countries worldwide, educating 15 million students.
We are also accredited through the National Association of Private Schools (NAPS). Schools accredited by NAPS meet or exceed state and national traditional educational guidelines in their pre-school through high school educational programs. NAPS is an independent educational agency founded for the purpose of recognizing educational excellence in the private, nontraditional educational environment.
Accreditation with NAPS reflects a school’s trustworthiness and means Bridgeway has demonstrated a history of providing students with a quality educational program. NAPS is a consortium of Christian educators and private school administrators from across the United States and Canada and is an independent third-party accreditation agency, not affiliated with any state, secular or regional accrediting agencies.
Transcripts and Accredited Diplomas
We keep academic records for all of our students. This means we manage report cards and transcripts, as well as issue accredited diplomas. As students approach high school, the need for official transcripts and accredited diplomas becomes even more crucial because colleges and technical schools evaluate these essential records in determining a student’s eligibility into their school.
Similarly, if you decide to enroll in public or private school after being enrolled with Bridgeway, you can feel confident knowing your student will make a seamless transition because of our nationally recognized record keeping standards.
