Attention high school students and parents: Did the College & Career Fair in November get you thinking about next steps after graduation? Are you wondering how to make the transition from Stanbridge to college or into the workforce? Curious about university life, what college classes are like, or how it feels to live away from home and on your own? Then join us on Thursday, January 10 for the annual Stanbridge Alumni Panel, where you'll hear stories from Stanbridge graduates who have successfully made their postsecondary transitions. The panel features Stanbridge alumni who are currently in college, recent college graduates, and those who are working in various career fields. Come listen to their experiences, get advice, and have your questions answered by former Stanbridge students who have been in your shoes. The event is free and will be held from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on campus in the Marilyn Center. RSVP by contacting the main office, or click here to email Colleen McQuade, our Director of College Counseling & Transitions.

Thank you for visiting the Stanbridge Academy Bridge Blog! We hope you stop by regularly to check for the latest school news, features, updates, and highlights, but there's more to our social media outreach than the posts on this blog. Stanbridge maintains an active social media presence on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest, where we not only post school news and features, but also highlight stories of interest for our community. A perfect example is the article below shared on our Facebook page, which profiles Kalin Bennett, an autistic basketball player recruited by Kent State. Check out his story, and be sure to like, share, and check back for more throughout the year!
