Back-to-School Goodies Giveaway from FINCHNWREN and Bridgeway Academy (ends 8/30/18)

I am so happy to celebrate the back-to-school season for 2018-2019 with you!  This year again, the FINCHNWREN blog is partnering with the fabulous Bridgeway Academy to bring you a giveaway to start out the school year with some amazing goodies.  One winner will win a cool Back-to-School prize package valued at $150!  (Look below for a complete listing of the entire prize package.)



Our experiences with Bridgeway Academy

Last year, during the 2017-2018 school year, we were blessed to serve as a blog partner with Bridgeway Academy.  As a result, my son Jackson (then in 10th grade) enrolled in Bridgeway’s FYC Biology with Lab.  He earned 1.5 credits for this high school biology class, which was taught by an exceptional science teacher (Mrs. Carla Berg) and utilized the Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Biology.  This top-notch course was part of Bridgeway Academy‘s Live Online Classes and was taught weekly, throughout the school year, in an online classroom.  Jackson was able to interact online each week with his instructor and fellow classmates.  Following the weekly class meeting, he would read from his biology textbook and work on online assignments via Moodle.  He completed experiments, semester projects with class presentations, and even dissections!  We couldn’t have been happier with our Bridgeway Academy high school biology experience.  (You can read more about Jackson’s high school biology course by following the highlighted link.)


Looking forward to High School Chemistry this year

This year, we’re thrilled to be partnering with Bridgeway Academy again!  I’ll be writing about Jackson’s class experiences over the upcoming school year as he participates in Bridgeway’s FYC Chemistry with Lab.  This course will also be taught weekly online throughout the school year, utilizing the  Paradigm Chemistry Textbook Set and the Bridgeway Academy Chemistry Lab Kit.  Jackson will meet online with his teacher and fellow classmates; complete reading assignments, experiments, and projects; and upon completion of the course will have accrued 1.5 high school credits for his transcript.

I’m so happy for Jackson to have this opportunity.  We have homeschooled since the very beginning of his school career; from pre-K until now.  And there are a number of subjects that I feel confident in guiding and teaching my son in.  However, chemistry is not one of those!  Yet Bridgeway Academy, with its excellent courses, certified teachers, and resources, is making it possible for Jackson to become educated about this branch of science while interacting with other students and being taught by a skilled instructor.  I truly couldn’t ask for more!
