Da Vinci College Preparatory Programs
Post-high school guidance at Bridges Academy is comprehensive, proactive, and highly individualized. Our post-secondary guidance encourages students to explore their talents, interests, and passions while acknowledging their learning differences, social and emotional development, and needs.
The guidance process is more than just a discussion about post-secondary educational placement. It is an opportunity to learn about and plan for each student’s continued development from ages 18 to 25. Research has shown that during this transition to adulthood, young adults are still developing, learning, and finding their interests and place in the world. This period should be rich with experiences, learning, and self-reflection. To help begin this process of maturation, counselors meet with students and families throughout high school, and our Junior and Senior Seminar courses give Bridges students time and space to grow as young adults and pursue their transitional goals
Bridges Academy is a rigorous college preparatory environment with graduation requirements that meet or exceed those needed for admission to most colleges and universities, including the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) systems. Students must complete the following requirements and maintain a full schedule. If and when the requirements in each discipline have been met, students can choose additional classes in any of the disciplines and/or electives to complete their full-load requirement, in consultation with the high school Division Director and the Director of College and Transitional Guidance
