About Bridgeway HS


Bridgeway Academy was founded in 1989 in response to the growing need to reach out to families and individuals who were looking to enhance their education in a home based environment.

Bridgeway Academy achieved certification and accreditation status in 1997. Accredited by the National Association of Private Schools, Bridgeway Academy has since expanded its services internationally.

Bridgeway opened its Bridgeway High School branch in September 2009 and is dedicated to helping students move forward in life with a high school diploma. Because we have found that some of the strongest independent study courses have been developed for the Christian market, some of our required courses are presented with a Christian world and life view.

Today, Bridgeway High School works with the growing number of adults who have not obtained their High School Diploma.

"Our commitment to our students is to provide them with the best courses, the most effective method of instruction, and the finest service possible.  When you succeed, we succeed!"

Bridgeway High School is located in a 10,000 square foot building containing our admissions and instructor offices, our curriculum materials and a limited amount of classroom space, which can be used for testing and evaluation when necessary. 



Because this is a distance learning program, you will not be required to travel to the Bridgeway High School office after enrollment*.  Instead, all courses will be sent and can be returned via mail.



*Please note that you may be required to travel to our office if questions concerning the Honor Code Agreement arise.

"The doors we open and close each day
