• Stand Out by crossing The Bridge!

    The Bridge: College Prep & Leadership Academy invites your students to the fourth installment of our rewarding week at the University of Pittsburgh (July 9-14, 2017)! The Pittsburgh Tribune Review quoted a Bridge alum, “… she keeps in touch with friends from The Bridge and took away leadership skills from the program that extended beyond college application into 'overall life and how to stand out.'"
