If you are interested in your student enrolling in this course and your student is currently enrolled in an English course at Bridge Academy, their current English instructor or Alicia Collins can help determine the next best English course for them. If you wish your student to take this course but they are not enrolled at Bridge, please contact Alicia Collins at or Emily Kirtlan to set up an appointment to have your student complete and submit their writing sample.
