Bridge International Academies is building a chain of ultra low cost private schools that deliver primary education to the world’s poorest, most academically underserved populations. Bridge uses a data-driven Academy-in-a-Box™ model to scale its reach with efficiency. From preliminary market research on real estate acquisition and construction, to the recruitment and training of local staff and communities, to the creation, distribution, and analysis of curriculum and pedagogy, to payment management and site monitoring, Bridge operates a vertically-oriented deployment of its academies and maintains central ownership of the entire process. Initial markets include Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, and India. Bridge also works with governments such as Liberia to operate a charter model at the country level.
