The Bridges Homeschool Language Arts Program will give homeschooling children a well-structured, high-quality, enriching reading and writing program to foster in them the joy of reading and writing. We provide a safe place where homeschooling children can meet other kids who love to learn and respect the learning process. And, we will be able to provide you – the homeschooling teacher – additional support and resources along your homeschooling journey.
The Bridges Homeschool Language Arts Program will start the week of August 30, 2016 and end the week of June 29, 2017. Our classes are combined grade levels of 4th to 7th grade. And we offer classes on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
Here at Bridges, we have developed a homeschooling program that focuses on literature, grammar, and writing.
