Experience The Difference... BOHA "A Cutting Edge Approach To Education"




Bridges of Hope Academy (BOHA) In a joint venture, BOHA has partnered with the Palm Springs Unified School District to launch what has been described as “ the model” for charter schools, independent and   home school programs”. Although we possess the characteristics of a charter school, we act as a co-op of the home school and independent study program. The BOHA Literacy Program is tailored for students diagnosed with Dyslexia, which is a cause the Executive Director of BOHA is passionate about.  Betty Ann Fernandez, the Executive Direct of BOHA is the driving force behind this successful program. Along with her drive and “fresh approach” to education, she has been recognized by the California State Senate for implementing a literacy program tailored for students diagnosed with Dyslexia.

BOHA currently serves kindergarten through 10th grade students.  The goal of our program is to empower students for success through academic achievement, creative interaction and positive reinforcement.  Extending beyond the constraints of the traditional classroom setting is our complete educational plan with special emphasis on small groups that will offer greater opportunity for “one on one” instruction thereby creating an atmosphere for students to rediscover the enthusiasm of learning.   As part of our “redefining education” philosophy, we have also Integrated leadership classes that will focus on developing the leaders of tomorrow who will stand for justice, truth, freedom and compassion. 

In light of this undertaking, BOHA has risen to the challenge to meet the ever growing needs of our community with the development of the “Young Achievers” program.

Young Achievers – This after-school outreach provides counseling to the “at risk youth” of our communities as well as tutoring assistance for the academically challenged. This outreach has been one of the passions of Bridges of Hope because of the potential lifelong impact it can have on the lives of our youth. This established program provides students a safe, positive and strong support system for the purpose of helping them overcome educational challenges while providing mentorship in the areas of interpersonal relationships, drug prevention, character building and other teen issues.   Licensed counseling is available to students and parents.

In 2006, we have had  the opportunity to serve between 45 and 50 students on a weekly basis during the previous school year. We also had 6 students fulfilling community service hours during the summer break. Young Achievers was launched in February 2006 and has gained  local government, and community leadership support.
