Our Academic Model

At Great Oaks – Bridgeport, we believe that every child can succeed. What makes us unique?

  • Unparalleled Personalized Instruction: Every Great Oaks student will receive at least two periods of personalized tutoring every day by our full-time Tutor Corps.
  • More Learning Time: Our school day is longer than that of Bridgeport district schools. Our school day runs from 7:30 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. (M-TH) and enrichment programs from 3:45 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. Fridays are half days and run from 7:30 a.m. –12:30 p.m.
  • 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 tutors engage in at least biweekly individual parent outreach through written reports and phone calls home.

Who can attend?

  • GO-BPT costs nothing to attend and is open to all Bridgeport students. We do not deny admission on the basis of aptitude, disability, native language or any other characteristic. In fact, GO-BPT specifically targets English Language Learners in Bridgeport.
  • Now in its fourth year, GO-BPT will enroll about 100 sixth graders for 2019-2020 and fill seats in grades 7-11 as they become available. In the Fall of 2017, we opened a high school and we will add one new class of 100 students every year until the school serves students in grades 6-12.
