Summer Bridge Program
With The Haverford School
Summer Bridge 2013 at the Art Sphere service project
Join students from Agnes Irwin and our brother school, The Haverford School, as we come together to make friends and prepare for an exciting life in high school! Students will also have the opportunity to meet students new to our schools.
Bridge provides a relaxed program, introducing students to one another and to Upper School life through a variety of fun-filled activities, a service trip and surprise field trip. There are neither tests nor homework.
The location of the program alternates between the two campuses, and faculty from both schools serve as the counselors. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to feel “at home” in Upper School long before school begins!

(Bridge) has been a fabulous experience for my daughter, and from what I hear, also for all of her old and new friends. She has grown in confidence in the last two weeks. She appears totally comfortable with "boys": "Mom, they aren't any different than girls, really, once you get to know them." In every aspect, we have been pleased. Thanks for all you and your staff do at both schools to make this a great entrance to high school.
