Bridgedale's Transition to Online Distance Learning
By Tanya Stanish, Bridgedale Academy Mom
"They are fully engaged, as if still in school!"
I appreciate how Bridgedale has implemented virtual learning in a way that best mimics an actual classroom setting. The teachers are doing the teaching, the boys are interacting online and the school work is progressing.
For us parents who are now working from home, we do not feel the pressure of having to homeschool our children or worry about idle time.
They are fully engaged, as if still in school. I am so grateful for the way the Bridgedale teachers have pulled this together!

And what do Bridgedale teachers say about Bridgedale?
"This is such a special place!! It is life changing for these boys as it centers around strong relationships that encourage strong academic growth. It’s a hockey school, but so much more than that.
"It’s a pleasure to come to work everyday. Thank you for creating such a positive, caring environment."
