MISSION and HISTORY

To provide a comprehensive educational program for children with specific learning differences, “teaching them the way they learn ” and enabling them to develop to their fullest potentials through academics and creative arts; and to provide support, information and training to the community and surrounding areas, acting as the foremost authority on learning differences. 

Since 1979, Bridges Academy's mission is to provide a comprehensive, appropriate educational program for children with specific learning differences/disabilities, "teaching them the way they learn" and enabling them to develop to their fullest potentials through academics and creative arts; and to provide support, information and training to the community and surrounding areas, acting as the foremost authority on "learning differences/disabilities" (LD) to include: dyslexia, Asperger’s, ADHD and other neurological sensory dysfunctions.

 We use the term "differences", rather than disabilities because these students can learn, if taught the way their brains are "wired." Due to neurological disorders that create these challenges, learning the traditional way in a typical school environment is often impossible.

Bridges Academy is the only nonprofit school of its kind in this region, serving El Paso TX, Las Cruces NM, Juarez MX and surrounding areas.  Founded in 1979, Bridges has a 40 - year history of successfully accomplishing the three-fold mission statement.  Our mission identifies and recognizes our students’ special needs as children with specific learning disabilities, addresses and creates a comprehensive program to meets our students' needs through diligent training in and application of the program created to best serve and equip our students, and then we avail our expertise to our community.
