I am absolutely thrilled to bring you my newest giveaway, courtesy of FINCHNWREN and the fabulous Bridgeway Academy. Read on to learn more and enter to win this amazing Mom’s Back-to-School Goody Bag! (Look below for a complete listing of everything one winner will receive!)
This year, my son Jackson begins his sophomore year in high school. Since he’s a 10th grader this year, we had already planned for him to take biology plus a biology lab in order to appropriately prepare him for college. Imagine our surprise and delight when we were contacted by Bridgeway Academy, who offered us the opportunity for Jackson to take and for me to review one of their online classes; one of which was the Apologia Biology course we were already considering! I’d like to share more with you about that class and how we’ll all be working together, along with an incredibly generous coupon code that Bridgeway Academy is offering to all FINCHNWREN readers!
Why Do We Love Bridgeway Academy?
Four years ago, we were selected to review Bridgeway Academy’s Fun with Science: Marine Biology, an online class designed for elementary and middle school students. It was exciting, fascinating, and captivating (to both parent AND child!); taught by an experienced certified science teacher; and included unusual projects and assignments for the students in addition to the weekly online web sessions. “Incredible” sounds like a weak word to describe it…is there such a word as “mega-incredible?”
Out of the 13 years I have homeschooled Jackson, this 8-week Marine Biology class from Bridgeway Academy remains one of our all-time favorite homeschool experiences. It was challenging yet approachable; truly fascinating not only in the online class time but in each week’s individual assignment; and so enjoyable while Jackson was rapidly absorbing a marine science education. It became the standard for the way we measured many of our homeschool classes (not only the science ones!). There has never been anything else quite like it.
What is Bridgeway Academy?
Bridgeway Academy is an online educational provider that we’ve long admired. They provide accredited courses, taught online by qualified educational professionals and teachers, which are both academically excellent and interesting to homeschool students. Classes are offered for students in preschool or kindergarten all the way through 12th grade, and over 25,000 students have participated in Bridgeway Academy classes from 1989 on. And 83% of Bridgeway Academy students proceed to their first choice college!
Courses are available in a myriad of subjects, from math and art, to science and geography, language arts, reading, literature, and social studies; and that’s without even delving into electives (like business, life skills, health, humanities, and more!). Suffice it to say that a parent could enroll students in an entire homeschool class schedule covering everything necessary for one year’s education in K-12, or simply choose one or a few courses to round out what’s already being taught at home. Regardless of the homeschool path chosen, parents can be certain that their students will experience excellence in the classes they take.
Bridgeway Academy’s High School Biology
Jackson is enrolled in Bridgeway Academy’s FYC Biology Course w/Lab for the 2017-2018 school year. This Learning Lab course uses the Apologia Biology textbook, along with Bridgeway Academy’s own Biology Lab Kit, and the course provides 1.5 credits upon completion. It will be taught online by a Bridgeway Academy instructor, and meets weekly starting in early September and continues (with a break in December/early January) through May, when the class concludes.
Both Jackson and I are so excited about this incredible opportunity. He has always been interested in science and our own worldview aligns beautifully with Apologia’s, so we’re really happy about the textbook choice. I am interested in science myself, but it is not my greatest area of strength, so I am pleased to have the chance for Jackson to be taught by an expert in the field as he studies high school biology. Plus, our experience with Bridgeway Academy has been so exceptional that we believe this will be another amazing year!
