The Belief
At Bridges Accelerated Learning Center, the belief is that there is potential within each student to succeed. Bridges provides opportunities and support for each student to reach educational, personal, and occupational goals. Bridges is an academic school with an alternative structure allowing students to complete the required course work for graduation. Students must be enrolled in Grapevine or Colleyville Heritage High School and are selected to come to Bridges through application and interview. Bridges is appropriate for students who have lost credit due to non-attendance issues, illness, or some other significant interruption of their education, are pregnant or parenting, and/or need a different learning environment.
