Making a Difference for Children With Learning Disabilities

Bridges Academy is a nonprofit, private elementary school that accepts and teaches students with dyslexia, high-functioning autism (Asperger’s), and ADHD. In El Paso, TX, we provide a safe learning space for children with learning disabilities.


Our Goals

We aim to make a long-lasting difference in the lives of our students by teaching them in the way they learn best. Our success stories drive us to continue in the plight to provide education that these children deserve.

A Passionate Team of Professionals

At Bridges Academy, our dedicated teachers and staff are committed to empowering children to be the best they can be. We have a specially structured curriculum augmented with a 1:5 teacher-student ratio so we can employ a more hands-on approach in teaching them.

The School’s History

Since 1979, we have been the foremost authority in providing comprehensive, specialized education to children who learn differently. Our students are usually identified with dyslexia, ADHD, ADD, Asperger’s, or other neurological sensory disorders. To meet their educational, emotional, and social needs, Bridges Academy provides a safe and caring environment.

"If a student does not learn the way we teach, then we must teach them the way they learn."
