Income for Homeschool Parent

Bridgeway Academy has an income earning opportunity available for homeschooling parents to help develop lesson plans and/or resource help for parents.  If you have crafted some creative lessons over the years, this is a great way to earn some pay for all of that hard work.  It is also a wonderful venue for helping another parent get help for an issue he/she may need to tackle like college and careers, how to manage multiple grade levels in the homeschool, etc.

You do NOT have to be a certified teacher to develop lessons and resources for this project; Bridgeway Academy recognizes that homeschooling moms and dads have some of the very best material at their fingertips, often because they wrote it or adapted it themselves to fit their homeschooling needs.  Compensation is provided on a per lesson/resource or set of lessons/resources basis.

If you would like additional information on how you can get involved in the Bridgeway Resource Center project, please contact Tim Hauck, the project manager at

Please share this opportunity with other homeschool families, too.  We are trying to put together the best and most comprehensive collection of educational resources available to the homeschool market.  I know that many of you have wonderful lessons or tips for homeschooling which you could contribute.

Time Flies! Year End Reflections :)

The journey this year has been FABULOUS!! We have enjoyed meeting new friends and sharing our talents with each other.

Our Secondary students (ages 12-18) learned the art of Debate. The students successfully competed in Region X NCFCA tournaments. Our co-op group hosted our first local tournament which was a huge success thanks to our families and the support from the local community! Our secondary students also discussed great works of literature and enjoyed a 6 weeks glass class at Warner Glass. What a great experience. Many science experiments were hypothesized and successfully analyzed.

Our Elementary kids (ages 4-11) learned over 24 history facts, 161 events and people in a chronological historical timeline, math facts, Latin conjugations, English grammar facts and over 100 locations and geographical features of Europe, Asia and select parts of the world. They also learned 24 science facts and experienced biomes, planets, laws of motion and thermodynamics! Upper Elementary kids (ages 9-11) wrote over 20 Medieval history based papers, experienced intense grammar study of the English language and worked on their mental math skills improving their overall math knowledge.

Our students at both levels participated in our annual Art Expo hosted by Traditions of Hanover in Bethlehem, PA. The students were able to showcase their growth of their artistic ability to family, friends and the residents of Traditions.

What a WONFDERFUL year! And, we can not forget friendship, fun and SOCIALIZATION was enjoyed by all.

We had superb parents willing to share their time, talents and passions with the students. It is the willingness and dedication of our parents that make our co-op so successful.

We are excited to continue our journey through the summer and into the Fall.

We are currently accepting new families on our wait list. Visitations to our co-op are by request only.
