Since 1979, Bridges Academy's mission is to provide a comprehensive and appropriate educational program for children with specific learning differences. We teach them in the way they learn so they can develop their fullest potentials through academics and creative arts.
Our school provides support, information, and training to the community and its surrounding areas. We act as the foremost authority in providing education for students with learning differences (LD), which include dyslexia, Asperger’s, ADHD, ADD, and other neurological sensory dysfunctions.
Our school is an accredited member of the Texas Association of Private Schools (TAAPS). We have full and part-time enrollment available, offering specialized education fit for your child’s needs.
At Bridges Academy, our students have been identified with neurological learning disabilities. To meet their needs, we based our teaching methods on scientific research findings that address people's learning differences. Our multi-sensory curriculum includes a robotics program, catering to children who learn best with technology.
Our Students’ Learning Differences
We have students who are diagnosed with secondary disorders like anxiety, depression, oppositional defiant disorder, bipolar, speech, and other learning and behavioral conditions. Our well-trained teachers employ intensive, research-based, and consistent behavior management when interacting with them.
