Homeschooling that fits your life
We know there is no one “right way” to homeschool. Every family and every child is a little bit different. So every homeschool curriculum and schedule should be different, right? That’s what we believe and with a Bridgeway package your family will be empowered to homeschool in the way and with the schedule that fits you best. Since we’ve been in this business for 25 years, we’ve learned that flexibility in four areas is the key to success — scheduling, teaching, learning and course selection. In fact, the fact that we offer flexible homeschooling is what many families love about Bridgeway Academy.
Flexibility in your Schedule
Many families choose to homeschool because they’re looking for greater flexibility. But not all homeschool programs are set up to work within your family’s schedule. Many cyber charter schools require you to be online at certain times each day, to take tests at specific locations away from home, and to start and end your year on their academic calendar. That’s not how we do things.
Our online and traditional programs put you in control of your schedule.
We think each child should set the tone for their academic program, the when, the how, and the what! Think about it. If your student is a morning person, that’s the best time to do your coursework. Likewise, if you’ve got a night owl on your hands, that’s going to be a better option. There’s no one time of day or day of the week that is better than another when it comes to learning. If it works for you, it works for us.
Flexibility in Teaching: You don’t have to teach every class.
Some homeschooling companies put all of the pressure on the parents–holding them responsible for teaching everything. Not us. At Bridgeway, you can choose what level of involvement you have in your child’s education, particularly as they grow older and begin to take more advanced courses. While you might feel comfortable teaching math to your elementary school student, you might shy away from teaching pre-calculus concepts at the high school level. You can be as hands-on as you wish; we’ll adjust the learning plan accordingly. We’re in this together.
Flexibility in Learning: Every day is different.
You’re encouraged to be flexible in the daily goals you set for each subject, whether your student is using traditional curriculum or is in our fully online homeschooling program. Does your child struggle to remain focused when forced to write too much? Do they grasp math facts better in small doses?
It’s okay to take the time you need to master the subjects your child struggles with. You have our blessing to take a break from areas of strength so you can catch up on the more challenging subjects. Chart your own course through your curriculum based on what is best for your child. We’ll help you make sure it works out in the end. (And no, you won’t be the first person to teach only Algebra for an entire month).
Flexibility in Course Selection: Coursework that earns an A+ for flexibility.
We believe in freedom of choice when it comes to course selection. Especially as your children grow older and tackle their high school years. From traditional textbook curriculum to fully online middle and high school programs, with Bridgeway you are in the driver’s seat. So is your child. We’re pretty excited about the breadth of electives we offer beyond the five core subject areas. And we think your kids will be, too. Want to create your own coursework? We’re more than open to discussing a plan to make that work for you. And really, that’s just the beginning.
