The Bordentown School (officially titled the Manual Training and Industrial School for Colored Youth , the State of New Jersey Manual Training School and Manual Training and Industrial School for Youth , though other names were used over the years), was a residential high school for African-American students, located in Bordentown in Burlington County , New Jersey , United States. Operated for most of the time as a publicly financed co-ed boarding school for African-American children, it was known as the "Tuskegee of the North" for its adoption of many of the educational practices first developed at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama . [2] The school closed down in 1955.

Because of financial difficulties, the school accepted state aid and was ultimately taken over by the State of New Jersey in 1897 and placed under the supervision of the New Jersey Department of Education in 1945. William R. Valentine, a graduate of both Columbia University and Harvard University , served as the school's principal from 1915 at least until 1948. Valentine stressed the approach of offering practical job training as a means to prevent students from becoming juvenile delinquents. [11]

The school was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. [14] It was the subject of David Davidson's 2009 documentary film A Place Out of Time — The Bordentown School , narrated by Ruby Dee and broadcast on PBS in May 2010. [10]
