Bridgeway Academy® Accepting ECOT Students

With the mid-year closing of ECOT (Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow) many parents are struggling to find a way to continue their child’s education that works for their family. This is where Bridgeway Academy comes in. No need to worry about losing time, flexibility, freedom or accreditation. We are ready to help! Our admissions’ team is working hard with ECOT families to make the transition into a second-semester program fast and easy. Bridgeway Academy was founded in 1989 and continues to serve K-12 students today.

Press Release:

Bridgeway Academy®, which pioneered personalized learning in homeschools and schools across the U.S. and around the world, today announced it is ready to accept students seeking an alternative to the closing Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT) school.

Bridgeway’s proven online and textbook homeschool solutions are a natural fit for ECOT students who are already accustomed to flexible schedules, live online sessions and individualized self-paced learning.

Many ECOT students chose the online charter school due to illnesses, social concerns, learning disabilities or other struggles. As a result, returning to their previous classroom setting is not an option. Therefore, the transition to Bridgeway Academy is appealing.

“This is an unfortunate nightmare for our family. Brick and mortar schools do not work for us and the other online options are already overwhelmed. They’re saying the availability will be ‘first come, first served’ and it’s very stressful for students like mine who simply cannot attend a regular classroom,” says ECOT parent Jennifer Ladoszka.

For families like the Ladoszkas, returning to their previous classroom setting is not an option. Therefore, the transition to Bridgeway Academy is appealing.

Bridgeway Academy is already home to a large contingent of Ohio families and their students. With a variety of educational choices, personalized packages, accreditation and full support, parents and students have the confidence that what they are doing today will be recognized and transferrable tomorrow.

“Our goal is to provide an option for students and a smooth and easy transition into Bridgeway Academy,” said Jessica Parnell, President & CEO. “We are working closely with parents to gain the school records necessary for a transfer and to prepare for student’s successful transition back to ECOT should the school regain its good standing in Ohio.”

Students can choose from live online classes, asynchronous instruction, blended learning, textbook only programs and even College Now course for juniors and seniors. Bridgeway’s programs are comprehensive and customized, and provide the support and assistance parents need to ensure a successful school year for their students.

Bridgeway Academy is poised to help ECOT families transition to a fully accredited homeschool program quickly and easily for the second semester of the 2017-18 school year. To learn more about Bridgeway’s options for Ohio families, visit For information on enrollment call: 888-885-5265
