The Bridge Prep Difference
Bridge Preparatory Academy is a Christian private school for students who learn differently in the heart of Historic Downtown Richmond. We deliver an extraordinary education for students in grades 1-12 in a nurturing, Christian community where students are understood, celebrated, and challenged to reach their potential.
Our mission is simple: "Get to know students. Teach them the way they learn best."
We accomplish this by implementing research-based, multisensory, and experiential instruction across all subjects and grade levels. Small, leveled classes allow our specially-trained educators to accommodate the needs of each student, while also utilizing his strengths, learning styles, and interests as the ultimate driving force in instruction.
Our personalized program allows students to develop the skills and confidence needed to regain a love for learning and a belief in their own potential. Bridge Prep faculty actively partner with families and students to build a community of trust and accountability, and foster the resilience to succeed and achieve—in school, in college, and wherever life takes them.
