Ben Bronz Academy Will Be Moving to a New Home!
We are thrilled to announce that Ben Bronz Academy, the Ben Bronz Foundation and the Learning Incentive will be embarking on an exciting transition. Since 1985, Ben Bronz Academy has afforded bright students with learning disabilities the opportunity to succeed academically and to learn the value of curiosity, perseverance, patience, self-reliance, and excellence. In the spirit of this tradition, we will be expanding our school and moving to a new location. This new location will allow us the opportunity to serve our students in a larger, dedicated space with room to grow. Although we plan to expand, the structure, integrity and, dedication of our program will remain the same. Following are some facts about our move.
