Graduating students of The Bridge Academy Jessica Markowitz, Tyrell Harris, Nola Martino, Matthew Perry and Charles Zaabadick.

The Bridge Academy in Lawrenceville held its commencement exercises on June 12, 2015. It recognized 13 Eighth grade students that are moving on to high school at The Bridge and five seniors that will be graduating.

A NJ state approved private school for students with language-based learning difficulties, the school’s goal is to help students “bridge the gap between potential and performance.” From the comments made by graduates and staff, it is obvious that these students have done just that.

All the graduating students spoke and many gave individual thanks to their teachers and especially their parents. Jessica Markowitz and Tyrell Harris will be attending Rowan University in the fall, Nola Martino already has her employment in cosmetology, a certification she completed while attending high school at Bridge; Matthew Perry will be taking local classes in preparation for college and Charles Zaabadick will complete a summer internship with the NJ Turnpike Association and plans to obtain employment in the fall with his Diesel Technician Certification.

The Bridge Academy enrolls students aged 8 to 18 who have a language-based learning disability. The school is located at 1958-B Lawrenceville Road in Lawrenceville. For more information, call (609) 844-0770 or visit banj.org.
