Welcome from the Head of School

January 2018

Welcome to Bridges Preparatory School’s second semester!

I am excited to serve as Interim Head of Schools for Bridges Preparatory School. Over the course of this semester I will be working closely with our Interim Assistant Head of Schools, Dr. Sherri Herbst, and the rest of our BPS staff to keep the daily operations of Bridges Prep running smoothly and in alignment with Board goals.

This semester we will build connections among our three campuses and work to unite our student body, currently ranging from kindergarten through 10th grade. This winter, we anticipate the Board of Directors will formally break ground on our new Upper School facility in Port Royal, off Robert Smalls Parkway just south of Cross Creek Plaza. The plan is to move our Upper School students to temporary modular classrooms there in August while Phase 1 of the new campus is being built. We will maintain our K-2 students at Celadon on Lady’s Island and our elementary and middle grades at the Main Campus on Boundary Street in Beaufort.

Bridges Prep is a South Carolina Charter School of Distinction, recognized for consistent high academic achievement. When we start the 2018-2019 school year, we will expand to 11th grade and then in 2019-2020, we will be a full K-12 school with our first graduating class!

We hope you enjoy learning about us through this website, and please follow us on Facebook. If you have any questions about what we offer or how we teach our students, please give us a call at 843-987-7737.
