High School Homeschool Designed for You and Your Child.
A careful balance of learning style with future goals
Your high school child is almost ready to fly the nest. If the elementary and middle school years aim to discover and build a child’s inner strengths, the high school years start shaping those strengths for the demands of the real world. After all, the world desperately needs the unique and exciting talents each individual exhibits.
We at Bridgeway Academy are constantly amazed by the talents our students display. And, honestly, we are just as impressed with the precision and steady hands of the future electrician as we are by the critical thinking skills of our best mathematicians and the beautiful sculptures our artists turn out. Talents are talents, and our high school homeschool aims to help each student understand the idea: “do what you love and you never work a day in your life.”
Your child’s curriculum should reflect and support their strengths and encourage their passions.
Our customized high school plans do just that. In fact, that’s what we’re known for. We design our fully accredited tracks to match or exceed the requirements of those at top-level private and public schools. Our five academic tracks include:
- College prep
Facebook, Online Courses and More Keep High School Homeschool Social
While many students who choose high school homeschool programs do love learning, this is also the age where they also crave interaction with peers. We provide that interaction through our Learning Labs where students get to interact with instructors and peers from all over the world. Each student is required to have a microphone and a headset in order to participate in class discussions. Students can even use the webcam on their laptops to see one another and chat!
Whoever is telling parents that high school homeschool is missing the social component hasn’t checked out Bridgeway Academy lately!
Bridgeway Academy has also set up several Facebook forums where all high school students who sign a no-bullying policy are free to interact with each other and with teachers. Students are welcome to connect and help each other via email, telephone and Skype as well.
Independent learning for mature learners.
Many of our parents have been homeschooling since the elementary or middle school years. Round about high school, it’s time for a much deserved lunch with friends! Our traditional high school homeschool programs offer courses that are self-teaching and explain the material clearly and concisely in a step-by-step process. Most home school high school students thrive with this independent approach, especially when paired with our robust support from advisors and administrative staff.
Bridgeway Academy makes sure parents are supported as well.
- Placement testing in each subject to assess your child’s exact comprehension level in core areas of each subject. Placement tests as well as interviews with the student, the parent and others help us understand each child’s learning style, interests, academic strengths, future goals and the possible gaps in his or her education.
- Curriculum Counseling to help you choose from over 700 pieces of curriculum to find the perfect fit for your child.
- Superior support and accountability that comes from working with one-on-one with an expert advisor.
- Transcript services where we send transcripts to all institutions as requested by the parent and student.
- Career and college counseling so that your child reaches their goals beyond high school.
Trust the custom high school homeschool respected by colleges and universities nationwide.
But don’t college admissions officers view high school homeschool as less rigorous than traditional high school? Not the way we do it. Bridgeway Academy’s fully accredited high school homeschool programs aim to match or exceed the standards set by the nation’s top private and public high schools. And college admissions counselors know that.
In 2012 and many other years since Bridgeway’s inception, 100% of our high school graduates were admitted to their first choice college or universities. And those first choices have been pretty ambitious. Bridgeway Academy high school homeschool students have won admission to colleges and universities like Amherst, Boston University, Brown University, Penn State University, Syracuse University, Virginia Tech, Yale University and so many more we’d bore you listing them all! In fact, over 80% of Bridgeway students go on to college – more than double the national average. College and university admissions officers tell us that they’re thrilled to receive applications from Bridgeway Academy high school home school students.
Get a jump start on college with Dual Enrollment.
Bridgeway’s dual enrollment programs enable students to earn both high school and college credits. If your child is looking to finish high school early, our accelerated program enables your child to finish the requisite coursework and earn the diploma far ahead of a traditional schedule.
Success in the course also means college credit.
In other words, because of this unique approach to high school homeschool, the student does not have to take the same course in college.
