Bridgton Academy is the only preparatory school in the United States whose student body is composed entirely of 185 postgraduate students. We operate more like a college than a high school and, therefore, the Bridgton Academy year is a true transition year. Our program offers a skills-based curriculum including 12 courses for transferable college credit; study skills and a study hall; an SAT prep course; an exceptional athletic program; and close faculty interaction. Our students develop the academic skills, study skills, self-discipline, and confidence necessary to be successful college students.

Summary: College counseling is a major component of the postgraduate year at Bridgton Academy. Historically, the school's college matriculation list is a long one, with a wide array of institutions represented. Ranging from Ivy League institutions to technical programs, students' college choices are indeed the result of a deepening appreciation of each one's unique academic and co-curricular talents. As a result of the intensive nature of the college process in a one-year institution, the bond between students and their college counselors is an important one.
