Virtual school aligns itself with top online learning curriculum

(CHANDLER, Ariz.) May 29, 2014 — Bridgewater Academy, a leading distance learning school that provides individualized 3-12 instruction, has officially changed its name to Odysseyware Academy.

Odysseyware Academy works with schools nationwide to provide technology-driven distance learning for 21st century students. More than 96 percent of Odysseyware Academy’s school partners return every year, retaining current students and attracting new ones.

“Bridgewater has always used Odysseyware online curriculum, so the name change was a natural one. As Odysseyware Academy we will continue our mission to personalize learning and support schools with students who can benefit from distance learning,” said Tami Murray, vice president of Odysseyware Academy. “The name is new, but our commitment and proven approach to individualized education has not changed.”

Odysseyware Academy is fully accredited, which means state and local public school funding applies and there is no out-of-pocket tuition charged to students. Students earn their diplomas from their local high schools with full participation in sports, activities and the school community. Students can also earn their diplomas directly from Odysseyware Academy. The web-based platform is accessible any time and from any device with Internet access.

“Odysseyware Academy is committed to being the best solution for our partner schools and districts,” said Beth TeGrotenhuis, the president and COO of Odysseyware’s parent company, Glynlyon. “We provide the experienced teachers, a dedicated support staff, the finest curriculum and all necessary professional development. Enrolling with us is truly a partnership.”
