Dear Families,

I am very excited to continue as Principal at Bridges Preparatory for the 2021-22 school year! I have had the opportunity to be the acting Principal since this past spring. Upon my arrival, I have felt nothing but a warm welcome from the families and staff, and I’m happy to be able to continue.

At Bridges Preparatory Academy, every scholar is supported on their journey to mastering the material and growing academically, socially, and emotionally by a team of dedicated educators. I know that we will reach our goal to become the premier school in Tiffin, OH.

We cannot do what we do each day without you, our school family. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful parent community, and your support makes a huge difference. Let us know how you would like to be involved to help make Bridges Preparatory Academy reach even greater heights!

Thank you all for your continued support of Bridges Preparatory Academy. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you and seeing your child grow this year

Gary Lane

We are managed by ACCEL Schools, a high-performing network of over 50 charter schools located throughout the United States.

Community Schools (Charter Schools) offer families an alternative to the local public school.
