Bridge Year

 

The New Jersey Department of Education has established the Bridge Year Pilot Program for students in the Classes of 2021 and 2022 who wish to attend Bordentown Regional High School after graduation in order to mitigate learning loss and/or participate in extracurricular activities or spring sports that were inaccessible due to the pandemic. Please note that students in the Bridge Year may not participate in fall or winter sports. To take advantage of the Bridge Year Pilot Program, must be on track to meet all of their graduation requirements. For more information, consult the resources below or reach out to the BRHS Bridge Year Liaison:
