College and Career Guidance

The Bridge School is committed to providing students with expert guidance to make thoughtful decisions about their futures. Our partners at Bright Futures Consulting provide individualized college and career guidance.


is a boutique educational consulting firm guiding students and families through decisions and actions related to their unique educational and professional journey.


The foundation of the college process is self-discovery. A Bright Futures’ Consultant begins by unveiling and affirming the student’s true interests, needs, and strengths through the Birkman Assessment. This process not only helps the student find a great college fit, but also gives them the self-awareness needed to make excellent decisions for the rest of their life.


The consultant thoughtfully considers each unique student, customizes their college list, and helps them communicate their strengths throughout the application process. They help manage application requirements and deadlines, and walk the student through their decision once admitted.
