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 is made of 5 major components:
1. Academic Advising
Incoming freshman are assigned a specially trained advisor who remains with the student through high school graduation. Our advisors are in continual contact with students, and families, administering academic and social emotional support throughout the year.
2. Saturday Sessions
We hold The Peninsula Bridge High School Academy Saturdays from 9:00 am - 2:45 pm. Each session includes 3 sets of 90 minute workshops specifically designed to support students in high school.
3. Homework Club
The Peninsula Bridge Homework Club meets every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the school year. These sessions give our high school students a safe place to complete assignments, access to 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 consistently seek to find new and exciting ways to engage our High School Academy students during the summer. Over 90% of our high school students are enrolled in collegiate summer programs, 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 into our organization. These committees have proven pivotal in strengthening the Peninsula Bridge community and creating lasting programatic change. 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 incorporates our student’s families to provide additional support through workshops and 1:1 meetings.
