high school academy
We strive to give our students the academic and life skills they need to be successful in high school, college and career. The Peninsula Bridge High School Academy includes 5 major components:
1. Academic Advising
Incoming freshmen are assigned a specially trained advisor who provide 1:1 support for every student through high school graduation. Our advisors are in continual contact with students and families, administering personalized academic and social emotional support throughout the year.
2. Saturday Sessions
We hold Peninsula Bridge High School Academy sessions on Saturdays from 9:00 am - 2:45 pm. Each session includes 3 sets of 90 minute workshops on high school success skills, college and career readiness, and social emotional skills development with Project Wayfinder curriculum.
3. Homework Club
The Peninsula Bridge Homework Club meets every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school during the school year. These sessions provide our high school students a safe place to complete assignments and access academic support provided by contracted tutoring services and corporate volunteers, as well as the opportunity to meet with their individually assigned Peninsula Bridge Academic Advisor.
4. Summer Programming
We seek to find new and exciting ways to engage our High School Academy students during the summer. 100% of our high school students are enrolled in collegiate summer programs, academic classes, corporate internships, local jobs or community service projects.
5. Student & Family Leadership Committees
Our High School Leadership Committees were developed to better incorporate student and family feedback in our organization. These committees have proven pivotal in strengthening the Peninsula Bridge community and program. As a direct result, we now now offer: Finals Review for Students, Family Game Night and, one of our most popular events, The High School Academy End of Year Barbecue. As always, we include families in workshops and 1:1 meetings too.
