    We at Bridgedale Academy are extremely proud of our relationship with Hillsdale Academy and Hillsdale College. Both academically and philosophically, we are bound to them.

    We recently celebrated the 239th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. It is proper we should celebrate this amazing document. But we should also honor it, by understanding what it “brought forth on this continent” those many years ago. All Hillsdale students do, and so do all Bridgedale students.

    The president of Hillsdale College, Dr. Larry Arnn, is one of the foremost scholars on the Declaration of Independence, and in particular on its relationship to our Constitution. His free webcast series “Introduction to the Constitution” is available to anyone interested in learning more about our country’s founding documents.
