Why did you choose Bridgton Academy?
I wanted to reach all the goals I mentioned above and I knew the best place to do that is here at Bridgton Academy. From what I heard, researched and learned, if I put in the effort I would get everything out of Bridgton Academy that I wanted to.
How is Bridgton Academy different that your high school?
The help, guidance and support does not compare to high school. The staff here does more than their “job.” I have been here for a little over five weeks and I have already seen the staff go above and beyond for myself and others multiple times. The classes are smaller than in high school so there is plenty of one-on-one opportunities with the teachers. The staff deeply cares about each and every student and truly believes in this school and I don’t think I can say the same for high school.
How is our coaching different from what you received in high school?
The coaching is unbelievable; I have learned more here at Bridgton than I ever did in high school. The year has only just begun and I know my ability and knowledge of baseball will improve throughout the year. The encouragement the baseball staff gives our players is something I did not see in high school. I am already a different player, mentally and physically.
