Chancellor Bridges' Welcome Message 2021-2022

Dear OPA families and community,

With honor and enthusiasm, I introduce myself as Chancellor of Oxford Preparatory Academy-Saddleback Valley and welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year.  Oxford Preparatory Academy prides itself on its commitment to caring for your children while providing them with a world-class learning environment.   

Over the last three years as Chancellor, I have had the privilege to have many conversations with OPA-SV staff, families, and students that have provided me with great insights into the core beliefs and values that make Oxford Preparatory Academy great! I firmly believe that every child is unique and gifted and that the partnership between home and school builds confidence in students to use their powers to shape their future and the future of our community and our nation. I am committed to working alongside stakeholders to continuously explore new ways to meet the individual needs of our Champions. 

In closing, please know that my door is always open to you. I heartily welcome your conversation and positive input throughout the year. Let us always keep our students the primary focus of our work.

I look forward to celebrating our collective successes during the 2021-2022 school year. 

Garrett Bridges

OPA Update 9/10/2021

Thank you all for an amazing first month of school! It has been great having our champions back and implementing some of the things that have had to be put on hold over the past 18 months. As we continue to get the 2021-22 school year underway, our students and professors have been busy with diagnostic assessments, building their classroom communities, learning new curriculum, and putting the great professional development organized by Dr. Henry into action in the classrooms. It is also very exciting to see all the creative MI activities professors have been implementing, including choice boards, MI class groupings, and outdoor learning activities, etc.
