We're laser-focused on immediate and lasting student outcomes.
Bridges to Readiness uses a research-based approach in order to maximize student learning and growth toward postsecondary goals, ensuring that our partners and families get the best possible return on their investment.
Our data shows consistently above average growth.
Our internal data demonstrates that when students are exposed to tasks that mirror the rigor of college entrance exams and instruction that aligns to the expectations of college and career, our students are able to show average growth of over 100 points on the SAT, whereas typical growth for students between 10th to 11th grade is 35-40 points.
This means that Bridges to Readiness students, on average, demonstrate 150% more growth over 8 sessions than most test takers demonstrate over a year of typical instruction.
Satisfaction + impact.
Bridges to Readiness way.
We are committed to ensuring the quality of our program by regularly getting our partners' feedback. Our tutors consistently receive high satisfaction ratings, with families often citing our ability to target their student's specific needs as a differentiator in their student's preparation for life after high school.
It all started when a student's life trajectory changed.
When Bryan was an instructional leader, a student at his school named Devonte had big dreams for himself: he wanted to go to college, earn a degree, unlock an unlimited future, and earn economic security.
The challenge? He had a 13 on the ACT.
Bryan, the leadership team, and Devonte's teachers started getting to work. They developed a program called Assigned Mandatory Tutoring, designed to give individual students like Devonte the support they needed, as well as some extra time for Advanced Placement classes.
The results? Devonte met college readiness benchmarks, earned a full scholarship to a university, and graduated in four years. Read more about the results of the program and Devonte's story here.
Bryan then started to learn that what worked for Devonte could work for more students. Bryan learned that what worked for Devonte could work for more students. He started working with hundreds of students across the country, helping 19 students earn perfect scores on the ACT and SAT and grow an average of 100+ points on each section in the SAT and 4+ points on the ACT. That's why he started Bridges to Readiness.
"My son’s scores showed great improvement and he met his goal for the requirements of a particular scholarship"

"My tutor at Bridges to Readiness was fantastic. I improved in all sections of the ACT and earned a 36 thanks to my tutor's extensive knowledge and insight."

"Our tutor helped my daughter by targeting her specific needs, something a test prep book could not be able to do. She loved that her tutor was able to give her specific tips and feedback that made her feel much more confident during the real test. She was able to increase her score from 650 to 780 in SAT reading and writing with just few sessions over a period of one month."
