THE BRIDGE WAY SCHOOL PHILADELPHIA
Mission & philosophy
The mission of The Bridge Way School is to offer a strong academic program to students in grades 9–12 who are in recovery from substance abuse and/or addiction that allows them to focus on learning in an environment in which sobriety is required and supported. We believe that a sober school that incorporates 12-step principles is a key component on the continuum of treatment and recovery management.
While the paramount objective of The Bridge Way School is to provide a meaningful and challengingeducational program, we recognize that our students need time during the school day to develop tools and strategies for maintaining sobriety. These combined objectives will help our students succeed on the life-long road to recovery as they continue to live, work, and play in their communities.
Finally, The Bridge Way School strives to empower students to continue their road to recovery beyond their attendance at our school as they continue onto another secondary school, college, or career.
Welcome to The Bridge Way School– Philadelphia’s first recovery high school.
We are accredited by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and provide a challenging academic program for students in grades 9 – 12 in an environment that requires and supports sobriety utilizing 12-step principles.
