  • Unparalleled Personalized Instruction: Every Great Oaks student will receive at least two periods of personalized mentoring every day by our full-time Fellows.
  • More Learning Time: Our school day is longer than that of Bridgeport district schools. Our school day runs from Mondays – Thursdays will be a full day of school. On full days of school our hours will be 7:25 am – 3:30 pm for our Middle School students and 7:25pm to 2:30 pm for our High School students. Some of our High School students may have the additional option of a study hall which will be dismissed at 3:00 pm. With half days on Tuesdays this year, with dismissal at 12:30 pm. and enrichment programs from 3:45 p.m. – 4:45 p.m(M-TH).
  • Unrelenting Focus on College Readiness: Every Great Oaks – Bridgeport student knows that his or her goal is to graduate from college.
  • Character Development: We actively develop character traits through character development classes and a school culture that reinforces our core values.
  • Relationships: We believe that family engagement is a critical component of student success. Our teachers and fellows engage in at least biweekly individual parent outreach through written reports and phone calls home.
