Founded in September 2003 by educators, parents, and community members, The Bridge Academy helps students with language-based learning disabilities, including dyslexia, dysgraphia, auditory processing, and ADHD “bridge the gap between potential and performance.” We are a New Jersey-state approved school for ages 8-18, and the only school in New Jersey certified by the Orton-Gillingham Academy. Classes consist of a 3:1 ratio in reading, a 4:1 ratio in writing and math, and small group instruction for other classes.
The Bridge Academy uses multi-sensory techniques throughout the curriculum, therefore our curriculum is tailored to meet the specific needs and learning style of each student. Related services available to our students are based on their IEP and include speech language, counseling and occupational therapy. Dedicated, experienced teachers take full advantage of our wooded property and stream to design authentic learning experiences for the students. We provide the right environment where students can relax, feel comfortable to take academic risks and learn.
We celebrate each child’s talents, successes and build upon a strong community including students, parents, family members, child study team members and professionals. Teachers nurture students to thrive and blossom into the people they are destined to be. Over 87% of our alumni pursue college and/or technical school after graduation.
