The Puente Experience

The Spanish word “puente” means “bridge,” and we seek to become the bridge between high school and college. Established in 1981, the mission of the Puente Program is “to increase the number of educationally underserved students who stay in high school, enroll in college, earn four-year college degrees, and return to the community as mentors and leaders to future generations.” Our academy achieves this mission by enrolling students into rigorous reading and writing courses, by teaching an inclusive, multicultural curriculum, by providing academic counseling from 9th to 12th grades, and by providing a small learning community in a big school.
