Wooster's Bridge Program is a highly successful, grades 6-12, mainstream program for students with language-based, executive function, or attention-related learning differences. The program is built around Wooster School's commitment to inclusivity, and gives students the confidence and skills for a lifetime of learning.
The program leverages Wooster School’s commitment to building independence and agency in its students, and fully prepares its Bridge students for college matriculation and a life of learning. A number of our current Bridge Program students have entered the program from Windward School, The Southport School, Eagle Hill School, and other mainstream public and independent school environments. To date, all of our Bridge graduates are attending, and thriving, at competitive four-year colleges.
It is important to emphasize that Bridge Program students are Wooster students first, so all are also expected to be active, thoughtful members of our community who have the qualities of kindness, compassion, and resilience that we expect in all of our students. Each student has strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their learning. Each student has different passions and interests. Each student has a slightly different learning trajectory given a particular concept or skill.
