The Bridge Virtual Academy is moving toward Common Core Standards, rolling out new courses, sporting a new look, and adding many features over the next several months!  We also have new partnerships with NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association) and NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) and have course approval from iNACOL!

NWEA partnership means that our courses have included computer adaptive assessments created by NWEA.  As students are assessed, the computer adapts to the need for more practice or moving forward in order to best meet student needs.

Partnering with NCAA means that taking our online courses can still receive college sports scholarships!

Some of our new features include tablet ability for students as well as the teachers.  E-notes are more advanced with spell check, ability to add symbols for math, sciences and different languages as well as the ability to add tables.  The new improved Glossary provides lesson vocabulary that can be spoken in any of the 17 provided languages and is more easily available on the lesson notes page.  Transcripts are available with each video lesson so a student can read along to what the teacher is saying.  Our courses now include Wet Labs as well as virtual labs and field trips so science comes to life!  We now offer Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Sciences.

New courses for middle school Career Exploration, Mathematics, ELA and World History are now available to all 6th – 8th graders.  High school courses include a new Physics class as well as a great set of Career Pathways where students can earn a certificate in Technology, Engineering, Digital Arts, Business and Health Science by passing classes and a test.

Our online high school courses are approved through a process and measured against standards of the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), a nonprofit organization of a diverse cross-section of pioneers at the forefront of the K-12 education, including teachers, charter schools, school districts, state education agencies, nonprofit organizations, colleges, universities, research institutions, and content and technology providers.  Online courses intending to receive “a-g” approval must be assessed against the iNACOL Standards for Quality Online Courses before submission to Universities of California.  The course will with be certified by California Learning Resource Network (CLRN) or the institution will conduct a self-assessment of the online course.  Students that want to insure that there classes are approved need to see if the school and/or the course providers are UC-approved if that is the direction their educational path is taking them.  The principal from the student’s home high school may certify a non-UC-approved online courses from an outside institution to satisfy the “a-g” requirements.  The UCs expect that the such certification follows a careful review of the curriculum.

The Bridge Virtual Academy is UC approved.  The Bridge Virtual Academy utilizes the teachers and the course curriculum from Education 2o2o (aka Edgenuity), which is included on this list for UC-approved providers and schools.

Look into The Bridge Virtual Academy as your online school option.
