Butler Bridge Program
Thank you for a successful 2012-2013 academic year! Bridge
programming will begin again in the fall of 2013, please check back
for a full schedule to be posted soon.
Writing the Butler Way
We are pleased to offer the Butler Bridge Program to students in
grades 3-12. The program draws on Butler's remarkable resources to
build a bridge between Butler and its community, as well as between
students who aspire to higher education and the professors,
professional writers, teachers, and college mentors who are
eager to share what they know.
Butler Bridge programs are designed to develop the writing
skills of pre-college students. Participation in such an
individualized writing workshop program will help students prepare
for college while also nurturing their talents and
