Healing is Possible Through Homeschooling
One in five children in America has learning struggles. Those struggles can include challenges such as poor reading comprehension, inability to focus, memory deficits, letter reversal, and more. When learning is so hard, school becomes a battle and our amazing kids miss their own incredible gifts and abilities. For many parents, this struggle can seem hopeless.
Do You Have One in Five? Find HOPE
Find HOPE through homeschooling with Bridgeway Academy’s Total Care HOPE Package. Through a unique combination of sensory integration learning therapy, customized curriculum, and academic support, your child can do more than survive school — they can thrive.
Help them rediscover their love of learning, their personal excellence, and their dreams for the future. Because HOPE makes all the difference.

Living outside of the United States and need a homeschool partner? You’re in the right place. No matter where you live, Bridgeway is committed to working with your student through our international homeschooling programs. As a result, you’ll receive the same benefits that families stateside receive: outstanding service, customized learning programs, and accreditation you can count on.
International Homeschooling with World-Renowned Accreditation
Families who are living abroad are looking for a better way to educate their children. Bridgeway’s international homeschooling programs make that possible. If you have access to the Internet, you have all of Bridgeway’s resources at your fingertips, including both textbook and online homeschool courses. If you live in a more remote region but can receive mail, you can take advantage of our textbook correspondence program — a popular international homeschooling program for military families, expats, and nationals. And if you’re just looking for accreditation to back up your independent homeschooling efforts, our Bridgeway Support package is the perfect fit.
We work with you to ensure that no matter the location, your child gets the education they need.
Homeschooling in Any Time Zone
International homeschooling with Bridgeway Academy gives you the flexibility you need and allows you to set your own schedule. With Bridgeway Academy’s Total Care package, you have the flexibility to create your own academic year, plus the comfort of knowing that your accredited homeschool partner is always by your side! We empower you to choose the months and days your child receives instruction under your own international homeschooling program with our elite accreditation. That’s the benefit of a customized school year.
Opening Doors Through Homeschooling
If your child is an elite athlete or performer, your entire family has made exceptional sacrifices to support their extracurricular dreams. But pursuing those dreams should not mean sacrificing the quality of their education. Don’t settle for less — Bridgeway’s homeschooling programs for athletes and performers enable your family to balance a demanding schedule with a quality education that opens doors to the future.
Finding Balance Is Key to Success
We’ve worked with many elite athletes and exceptional performers over the years, so we know how grueling the schedule can be. And we understand the unique needs of scheduling both the “school day” and the “school year” around those pursuits. With year-round enrollment, your star performer can go to school any time, anywhere. Our flexibility gives your family the perfect balance between academics and other achievements.
Our fully-accredited programs ensure that your child gets the education they need and the recognition they deserve.
The Importance of NCAA Approval for Student Athletes
For many student athletes, the dream of earning a college athletic scholarship is what drives them. But playing their sport well, although a large part of the college equation, is just one aspect of a successful college recruitment process. In order for courses to be NCAA Division I and II approved, they must adhere to college preparatory standards and meet the rigor, content, and course length expected of a college-prep course.
Two Programs That Meet NCAA Standards
The Homeschool Umbrella Program
Bridgeway Academy’s NCAA-approved homeschool umbrella program means that student athletes can take advantage of textbook homeschool courses and earn credits that not only bring them closer to graduation but closer to Division I and II scholarship opportunities as well.
Bridgeway’s Elite Virtual Academy
When a student athlete opts to complete high school requirements using online courses, NCAA has additional standards that must be met. These include regular student-teacher interaction, direct teacher evaluation and feedback on student academics, and opportunities for phone, virtual, and email conversations on an individual level. Courses must also meet minimum time-period requirements and the content must be greater than or equivalent to the amount of content in traditional high school courses.
Bridgeway Academy is proud to announce that our Elite Virtual Academy combines our world-renowned homeschool support with direct teacher interaction for every course. Students can attend classes online any time from anywhere and take advantage of our highly-qualified and supportive teachers, who work with you all year long.
Secular Homeschooling Is Growing
If you’re looking for a secular homeschooling program, you know how difficult it is to find a program that provides the quality and flexibility you need. At its grassroots, the homeschool community was a faith-based community; however, with more and more families seeking secular homeschooling options, Bridgeway has expanded its curriculum and programs to meet that growing need. Best of all, our homeschool programs include the ability to choose or combine secular and faith-based curriculum and online classes to build a homeschool program that meets your needs.
Your Core Values at the Center, or Not
At Bridgeway Academy, our goal is to equip your family to homeschool your way with the best in homeschooling curriculum. And by best, we do mean secular and faith-based curriculum! We work with over 40 of the most respected publishers to create a homeschooling program that is unique, tailored to your learner, and reflective of your desire for faith-neutral homeschooling. With Bridgeway Academy, the teaching of spiritual matters is yours to drive, just as it should be.
Over the course of more than two decades, we’ve supplied thousands of families with Christian homeschool curriculum. And we were one of the first to introduce online Christian homeschool courses and programs. If you want the Bible to play a fundamental role in everyday learning, you’ll appreciate the fact that we offer Christian homeschool curriculum options for every subject.
Pulling from the offerings of Christian homeschool curriculum thought-leaders like the School of Tomorrow, Apologia, BJU Press, Alpha Omega, and several others, we’re able to embed every subject with Christian principles that strengthen faith while promoting academic excellence.
The Choice Is Yours
Prefer to separate Biblical teaching from core academics? With Bridgeway, you can do just that. We’re pleased to accommodate your preferences by also offering the best of secular curriculum that you can supplement with faith-based electives when you choose. Our Bridgeway Total Care and Bridgeway Customized packages include a full year’s worth of curriculum — Biblical or secular — tailored to your child’s learning style.
Our Valued Military
Whether you serve as part of the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard, you perform an invaluable service for our country. And we want to thank you for your service and your sacrifice. We recognize that your commitment to defending our country, wherever you are sent, can provide a lot of instability when it comes to your children’s education.
The Ever-Changing Aspects of Military Life
If there’s one thing you can count on in the military life, it’s change. Family schedules can be difficult and subject to change on a moment’s notice. With each new duty station comes a new school, ranging from amazing to seriously-in–need-of-help. And with constant moves, military kids may miss out on being mentored by a teacher who takes a special interest in their education.
A Consistent, Quality Education at Every Duty Station
Even as you move, your child’s education can remain consistent with Bridgeway Academy’s military homeschooling program. You’ll enjoy the flexibility that allows you to teach your child at a pace that fits in with the realities of your life.
With our military homeschooling program, you have the ability to choose the days and months when your child receives instruction. Is a move coming up? Are you taking a block of leave to visit home? No problem — you can plan ahead with military homeschooling!
Our Way of Saying, “Thank You”
We’re so indebted to our military families for the sacrifices made in the service of our country. We offer active and past military a 10% discount on our programs and we also offer military scholarships. This is just our way of saying, “Thank you!” The homeschool scholarships are available for Grades 1–12 and are based on a family’s financial need. Please contact our admissions department at 800-863-1474 for more information on scholarships for our military homeschooling programs.
Serving You So You Can Serve Others
The mission field is often one of the most blessed and challenging callings. Missionary families who serve overseas will encounter many amazing wonders and challenging obstacles while seeking to spread the gospel.
But with a homeschool partner like Bridgeway, giving your child a thorough homeschool education doesn’t have to be another mountain to climb. We’re here to serve you. From our academic advisors, who help you find the perfect curriculum fit and schedule for each child, to our online program, where you can get immediate feedback regarding your child’s grades and mastery, you’re never alone. No matter where you are.
Our Way of Saying, “Thank You”
Serving as a missionary is a calling that we at Bridgeway Academy want to commend. As a thank-you for your commitment, we offer a substantial Missionary Family Discount. We’re excited to help you further the gospel inside and outside of your home.
