The Jointure has been providing community education for over 100 years. It began in 1914 as a small community initiative in Bound Brook through the Board of Education. Over the years, The Jointure expanded and partnered with other local school districts in Somerset County. Today, the Jointure represents a true "joint venture" in learning. In addition, the Jointure has partnered with local schools providing Preschool Wrap Around, Kindergarten and Before & After School Programs. Preschool and Community Education classes are also offered at our Creative Campus, formally the Old York School. We look forward to continuing to bring quality educational experiences to the communities of Somerset County.
To provide educational and cultural programs to empower children and adults in our communities to become independent, lifelong learners and to prepare for changing conditions in our society.
