We are dedicated to understanding and educating gifted and highly gifted students with learning differences (twice-exceptional or 2e students) and fostering a successful academic and social experience for our students and the broader community. We do this through the work of two divisions: Bridges Academy and The Center for Twice-Exceptional Research and Professional Development (The 2e Center).
Bridges Academy, a college preparatory school for Grades 4-12, empowers its students to thrive academically and socially through small classes and differentiated instruction, creating an environment in which gifts are recognized and developed, and learning differences and disabilities are accepted. Many students come to Bridges defined by their challenges but graduate defined by their strengths and talents.
The Center for Twice-Exceptional Research and Professional Development educates and supports educators and the broader community in the identification, understanding, and education of twice-exceptional students. By seeking out and developing best practices through research, curriculum development, outreach, and teacher training, the 2e Center allows us to develop and share our knowledge to benefit this underserved population.
