Welcome to The Bridge Year!!  Our program provides an early college educational experience and college credits for eligible Maine juniors and seniors. At the heart of this program are college courses taught as part of the high school curriculum together with career exploration through courses and programs at their regional career and technical high schools education.   As a result students in the Bridge Year program can leave high school with 26 or more college credits with no debt, with a career direction for college and with an employable skill from a CTE school.  This allows a full-time college student to earn an Associate’s degree within 12 months of high school graduation and/or complete a Bachelor’s degree option at a University of Maine System school in fewer than four years.

A program where academic rigor and real world application meet!!
