Welcome to Lehigh Valley Summerbridge

Teacher applications are due April 8, 2022. 

We will begin accepting student applications at the beginning of March 2022.
Lehigh Valley Summerbridge (LVS) is a free, non-profit enrichment program hosted by Moravian Academy that is designed to assist predominantly low-income students, from nine different middle schools in the Lehigh Valley, in their quest to become a college student. These students, comprised of a variety of ethnic and racial backgrounds, and multilingual speakers, are likely to be first-generation college attendees and graduates. All teachers in our program are enrolled in college degree programs and are studying education.

Our History
Established in 1993, Lehigh Valley Summerbridge serves economically deprived and academically talented seventh and eighth grade students throughout the Lehigh Valley. Over 1,000 students have actively participated in the LVS program. The program has also served hundreds of teachers, many of which are currently employed as teachers in the Lehigh Valley.
The program operates at:
Moravian Academy Merle-Smith Campus
