Bridge Preparatory Academy is a ministry of Heritage Baptist Church in Sugar Land (, pastored by BPA co-founder Jeff Locket, and as such all curriculum is taught through a Biblical worldview.

School History:

Bridge Preparatory Academy was established to provide an outstanding Christian, college preparatory education to students who learn differently. Co-founders, Jeffrey and Jackie Lockett, are parents of a child with a learning difference. For years they searched throughout the greater Houston area for a school that would meet the needs of their son, as well as recognize his potential, all from a Christian Worldview. As educators with combined experience of more than 30 years in public and private education, the Locketts knew they were not alone in this need. In their experience, they encountered many other students who, although extremely bright, creatively gifted and capable, struggled in traditional school settings. While well-meaning schools provided rigorous academics, they either offered limited to no individual accommodations, or the accommodations went far beyond the support these capable students needed. The Locketts felt burdened to do something for these unique learners.
After much prayer, research, and planning over several years, Bridge Preparatory Academy opened its doors in 2015. Employing a combination of researched-based instructional strategies and personalized academics, along with high individual expectations and strong character development, Bridge Prep is here to serve as a springboard for limitless academic and personal achievements for all kinds of learners!
