A group of Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast High School students in Drexel Hill (Delaware County) will receive a certificate of completion and special awards at a Graduation Ceremony from the Teen and Police Service Academy (TAPs).

 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Monday, January 23, 2023
Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast High School
(Anthony F. Frederico, Class of 1969 Auditorium)
403 North Lansdowne Avenue
Drexel Hill, PA 19026 (Delaware County)

 This nationally recognized program is conducted locally in partnership with the Upper Darby Police Department and began at Bonner & Prendie during the 2021-2022 school year. 

During the ceremony the fall semester cohort for the 2022-2023 academic year will receive recognition in front of their families as well as Bonner & Prendie Administrators; Upper Darby Mayor, Barbarann Keffer; Upper Darby Police Department Superintendent, Timothy Bernhardt; and officials involved with the program who guided students through the program. 

A second cohort of approximately 35 students will begin the program in late January and are anticipated to graduate from TAPS in late May 2023.

The TAPs Academy is a program designed to build lasting and meaningful relationships and close the gap between teens and law enforcement.
