Catasauqua, PA &ndash Meeting the unique education needs of both parents and students, Bridgeway Academy has served over 20,000 families around the globe since their start in 1989.  Created to meet the market demand for freedom in education, Bridgeway Academy&rsquos highly customized K-12 programs meet or exceed the highest accreditation standards possible.  Paired with their incredible support network that acts to help reduce the fears and concerns many parents may feel regarding their abilities, homeschooling is more and more being viewed as a viable education option for all varieties of families.
With Bridgeway&rsquos extensive student evaluation, which identifies personality style, gifts and abilities, and the ideal approach to learning for each student, parents can rest easy knowing that they have a program that is guaranteed to work for their child.  Add to that the freedom to select a textbook approach, online learning or live interactive classes with students from all across the country and around the world and education becomes something much more exciting.  Best of all, all programs are tailored to a student&rsquos academic strengths and weaknesses rather than simply assigned based on age and grade level.
This need for educational options has escalated over the summer, with more information being released on the mandate in the public school system to teach the &ldquocommon core&rdquo curriculum.  More and more stories emerge daily of religious freedom being stripped from classrooms, &lsquoalternative&rsquo lifestyles being promoted and students being unprepared after graduation.
Often, families feel trapped by the education choices they have for their children, or they simply are in a unique situation where a public school education is not a good fit.  Some families are required to relocate often or spend significant time overseas.  Others have children who are in competitive sports or the arts and are therefore unable to navigate traditional education&rsquos time requirements.  Some families are uncomfortable with the curriculum used in the public school system, and may not have access to a private education.  Some children have special needs that make options in the education system challenging.  Other parents simply desire to give their children the optimal education available.
&ldquoWhen parents realize the freedom they have in homeschooling when they realize how powerful an individualized education can be and when they see their children shine, they don&rsquot go back,&rdquo explains Jessica Parnell, President of Bridgeway.  &ldquoHomeschooling has opened up the possibilities for millions of students.  As parents, we don&rsquot have to accept a one size fits all education any longer and that opens up the future for our children.&rdquo
Many of Bridgeway&rsquos students pursue excellence not only in the classroom, but in specialized careers or competitive sports that require extensive training that would conflict with a traditional education schedule.  By tapping into the customized curriculum and time-flexibility that homeschooling offers, students are able to excel in both their passions and their education.
Bridgeway Academy is continuing to register students for the 2013-14 school year.  For more information, please call 800-863-1474 to speak with an Admissions Representative.
