Born in Pennsylvania

Since 1989, Bridgeway Academy has been designing personalized, innovative education solutions that unlock student potential.

About Us

Bridgeway Academy was founded in 1989 in response to the need for more freedom in education and the protection that accreditation offers for homeschooling families. Since then, more than 30,000 K-12 students, and many charter and brick-and-mortar schools, have made Bridgeway Academy their trusted education partner.

“I am constantly amazed at how fearfully and wonderfully we are made. Our design impacts who we are, how we learn, what we believe, and how we process information. And when we can better understand ourselves and others, we are better prepared to motivate and engage with others.”

Jessica Parnell, CEO of Bridgeway

As part of our commitment to personalized homeschooling, we are proud to offer both secular and Christian options for homeschool families, charter schools, state organizations, and others who seek home education options for their families.

Regardless of your reasons for homeschooling, or the level of support you need, Bridgeway Academy is poised and ready to support you. Our unique approach to individualized education has helped thousands of students thrive and reach their goals.

Our leadership team is committed to personalized homeschooling. We are proud to offer both secular and Christian options for homeschoolers, charter schools, state organizations, and others who seek home education options for their families.
