Bridges Academy

Our mission is to successfully reunite teen boys and their families with a positive vision for their future.

Bridges Academy is reflected in the magnificence of the Three Sisters mountain peaks (Faith, Hope and Charity) on the east side of the Cascade Mountain Range, between the cities of Bend and Sisters, Oregon, where the beauty and grace of today meets the healing and restoration of tomorrow.
