General School Mission

With and through the cooperative support of parent and teacher - home and school, our MISSION is to raise up and support the child. Bridges Academy students are educated with a duality of purpose commecting the pillars of each bridge of knowledge. Through this collaboration, we seek to mold the total student, academically, physically, socially and morally.
It is our PHILOSOPHY that all children learn, and given adequate opportunities for exposure and first hand encounters, most can excel. To this end, The Bridges Academy maintains a stimulating learning environment, provides quality education and encourages a sense of community through a broad range of experiences both within and outside the classroom. We perceive our educational mission as an integral component in the development of world citizens for the international community of the next century. Thus we commit ourselves to accepting children where they are and showing them the heights to which they can soar.

The VISION of The Bridges Academy is to be a schoolof choice for parents seeking academic physical, social and moral excellence in the development of their children. To fulfil thjis vision, we are sensitive to the needs of the population we serve. We strive to exceed all expectations by makingexcellence the standard by which we are measured as well as the standard by which we measure as we develop the leaders of twenty-first century."
