About This School

The mission of the Central Jersey College Prep Charter School is to provide academic and social challenges and opportunities to students, instilling the skills and knowledge that they will need to succeed in their lives. The CJCPCS aims to forge a powerful partnership out of the student-teacher-parent triad. This partnership will provide and empower our youth with the support necessary to reach their highest potential – intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically– building on their inherent promise to aid in their preparation for college and career.

CJCPCS seeks to graduate men and women who think critically and creatively; have acquired strong skills in mathematics, science, language, technology, history, and the arts; and are committed to a lifetime of learning and civic involvement.

CJCPCS motivates every student, without exception, to make acceptance into a four year university their goal for the future after high school. All teachers, administrators, and staff have this as their underlying objective. Attaining a college degree is essential for our young people who are required to compete in the global economy of the 21st century. We believe a college degree to be necessary not only for gainful employment, but also to provide young people with the skills, knowledge, and values they need.

The CJCPCS mission requires emphasis on the following: instillation of the desire, resources, and the social skills to attend a four year college; academic preparation for all students to gain acceptance to a four year college; well developed parent involvement; high level of rigor in the curriculum in basic skills—Mathematics and English; as well as strong coursework in science, technology, foreign language, history, and the arts.
