Peninsula Bridge has a very clear scope: helping motivated middle school students from select schools in the Ravenswood, Redwood City and San Mateo-Foster City districts perform their best academically and personally. Each year we welcome a new cohort of motivated students to our tuition-free program. Once we accept a student into the program, we embrace his or her family by offering three distinct support services: our Summer Program, our Academic Year Program and our Parent Program.
Peninsula Bridge connects our students with the resources for them to successfully pass Algebra I in 8th grade and enroll in a college-prep English course in 9th grade, thereby getting students onto a rigorous academic track in high school that opens the door to new opportunities and options beyond high school. We also act as a bridge for our students to participate in enrichment activities such as art, music and sports--programs most often cut in under-resourced schools--during the summer and the school year.
"The three summers I've spent at Bridge have been astonishingly amazing. Not only did my grades improve, but I had a blast being here."--Sara
