The proven success of Bridgeway Academy

Bridgeway Academy has partnered with homeschooling parents and their children for over two decades, and their success is proven. 82% of their students have gone on to college, far exceeding the national average and giving you peace of mind about your child's future success.

Any homeschooling parent knows the value of support they can trust. We now offer even more security to home educators with Bridgeway Academy's nationally recognized Christian homeschool academy. They provide accreditation, record keeping, and personal academic support.

The academic excellence of BJU Press

In 1982 BJU Press became the first Christian publisher to offer textbooks to homeschools. Other services soon followed as the need (and numbers) of home educators grew. In 1995, BJU Press began offering distance learning classes to homeschool families. The first classes were offered only by satellite; today they are available online or as DVD's or Hard Drive.

The mission of BJU Press is to help you give your children the knowledge they need and the wisdom that will help them apply it.

BJU Press textbooks are consistent in scriptural and academic standards in every subject and every grade. Our teacher editions and additional materials allow for generous flexibility and customization within a unified biblical worldview.
