Limited Capacity seats available

The Young Expert (Badges) program at Bridges Academy is a highly personalized learning model, in which students explore deeply a chosen topic. Students earn Badges after in-depth work, and many work toward young professional expertise in a topic area to earn one of our highest designations. Currently in its third year of implementation, we at Bridges are committed to best supporting all our diverse learners as they develop the skills to be successful in pursuing what could be future careers. We will be looking at the case studies of some 10th graders beginning our program with a project-based learning unit where students were asked to develop real-world skills in an actual cold case and some of our seniors on the Young Expert pathway.
