K-8th Grade Program
Our K-8 program is designed to inspire a love for wisdom.
The Bridge K-8th grade model is for parents, teachers, and students to collaborate and customize a learning plan that is adaptive, rigorous and motivating for each student. This plan focuses on the student’s learning style, interests, and academic goals. Bridge will facilitate this personalization with access to: licensed and highly qualified teachers, a spectrum of quality curriculum options, educational software, technology, assessments, and a weekly learning cohort. Cohort is a time to come to campus and meet with a learning coordinator and your class with a cap of up to twelve students. This three hour cohort meeting time will be the same each week, and will either be a morning (9am – 12pm) or afternoon (1-4 pm) cohort. Once the cap has been reached, students will be placed on a waiting list and we will follow the ORS 338.125 for admitting new students.
