Academic Support - Bridges Program

Bridges Program

Oakbrook Preparatory School believes each child is brilliantly made and encourages students to discover and cultivate their individual talents and abilities. The Bridges program aims to enhance the educational experience for all students in Kindergarten through 12th grade and assist students in reaching their full God-given potential and develop a lifelong love of learning. Eligible students who have been diagnosed by a licensed professional with a learning disability, processing deficit, or ADD/ADHD are provided a variety of services including, academic support, organizational support, study skills, standardized testing support, and/or time management, as well as classroom accommodations.

PROGRAM COSTS
Administrative Fee: $1000 annually

This is for EVERY student with accommodations with an Oakbrook Prep Individual
Learning Plan (students with “recommended accommodations” without ILPs are not
required to pay this fee. That means students who enter Oakbrook with a 504 or IEP
from another school may still receive those accommodations to the best of our
ability). If a student enrolls in the Bridges program then he/she will be provided an
Oakbrook ILP. Enrollment in Bridges includes weekly communication between the
Bridges staff and teachers as well as two Parent Conferences with our academic
support coordinator.


Tutoring: (in addition to the Administrative Fee and offered during the school day)
Individualized tutoring, including Orton-Gillingham and content area tutoring, is
also available in Bridges. One-to-one and small group academic coaching is offered
to assist students who struggle with organization, study skills and/or time
management. Academic Support Specialists guide students through the processes
of homework, projects, organization of materials, and time management, as well as
standardized testing support and classroom accommodations.
