Bridge To Success

We are extremely excited to offer an opportunity for students who are two or more years over-age. The Bridge to Success Program addresses all of the barriers to graduation through a comprehensive approach. By leveraging national, state, and local partners, Duval County Public Schools has developed a program that will provide individualized support to help students graduate on time and ready to fulfill college and career goals.

The Bridge to Success Program has a central hub for elementary and middle school at The Bridge to Success Academy at West Jacksonville #29 and the main offices for the high school on the first floor of A. Phillip Randolph Academy, with additional sites located within neighborhood school. This allows eligible students to continue to attend school and participate in the extracurricular activities at their neighborhood school, while still receiving the support needed to get back on track. Supports include:

  • Rigorous face-to-face instruction with a focus on ACT/SAT preparation
  • Student advocates and mentors
  • Positive behavior supports and interventions
  • Support for attendance
  • Parent involvement activities
  • Structured after-school programs, including extracurricular activities, career exploration and internship opportunities

 

Program eligibility:

  1. 2 or more years overage and/or 1 or more retentions
  2. Priority given to students in the schools housing the programs
  3. Seniors admitted on a limited basis
