Bridgeway Academy boasts incredible statistics of college success, with 85% of their graduates being accepted into their first college choice. 82% of Bridgeway students have gone on to attend college, which far exceeds the national average of 69.2%.

Every parent wants their students to succeed in their college and future endeavors. However, more and more students are entering the college world underprepared for the workload. According to the 2016 ACT report, 34% of students taking the test did not meet any of their benchmarks, showing that they will struggle in college coursework. Not only are kids lacking academically, but they go to college acquiring debt and starting their life stressed and bogged down with college loans. These statistics can become a huge burden for parents when deciding the best path of education for their high school students.

Bridgeway Academy not only recognizes these stressors, but gives parents and students the support and expert advice, along with a school counselor meeting for seniors to set them up for success. Bridgeway packages meet each child where they are academically while challenging them to be fully prepared for standardized tests as well as college level coursework. For those students wanting to get ahead of the game, Bridgeway offers Dual Enrollment classes and AP/Honors courses in their curriculum.

Each year, the price of a college continues to rise along with the statistics of college student debt. With over $1 Trillion of outstanding student loan debt and over 60% of students needing loans to finish their degree, it’s hard to understand how anyone can afford to earn a degree while trying to start life on their own. Take a look at some of these top statistics from Sept 2016:

●    Approximately 35% of freshman students will drop out of college.
●    Over 86% of students with loans have more than $28,000 in loans and 10% of students with loans have more than $54,000 in debt.
●    Average number of students borrowing on an annual basis is 12.25 million
●    There are over 14 million students who carry loans for up to 30 years, while another 2.2 million people are still paying off student loans after the age of 60.
