Bridge Program Contextualized Curriculum Resources
The Bridge Program is centered around preparing students in a specific sector.
A sector-focused curriculum improves students’ academic skills by engaging them with key issues and questions relevant to their career goals.
The HSE (Formerly GED) Bridge Programs’ curriculum
uses authentic, primary source materials from specific career fields to build
basic skills. Areas currently offered include Health, Business and Science.
How does the Bridge curriculum prepare students to make informed decisions about post secondary transitions?
During the program semester, all Bridge students complete a series of college and career
workshops, are designed to help students
shape their own college and career pathway.
A transitions counselor works
with Bridge students providing both group support as well as one-on-one
attention. In the classroom setting, counselor facilitates the college and
career workshops, while beyond the classroom they work with students to develop
and execute more individualized plans. Additional
transitional supports include assistance with the application process,
financial aid guidance, and educational case management.
Once the semester is over and
students have successfully passed their HSE exam, transition supports continue
for students moving into college and certificate training programs.
