Academies within the Kingsway Regional School District prepare students for advanced college study in a particular content area. These four-year programs of academic study are offered to a selected group of highly motivated students who have demonstrated interests and abilities in particular fields of study.
Academies include in-depth study of targeted courses on an advanced level, with many courses meeting the requirements of Advanced Placement or college-level work. Courses fall under traditional academic disciplines such as science, math, social studies, and language arts as well as focused disciplinary courses related to the specific studies within. The four-year sequences combine to make an integrated and interdisciplinary academic experience for students. The Academies address core skills, knowledge, and values that are essential to success in high school and in preparation for acceptance to a competitive four-year college or university.
All interested students must apply for acceptance into the S.T.E.M. Academy, the Business Leadership Academy, or both Academies (noting a preference) by submitting a completed application packet by the designated deadline. Potential applicants must submit all required information by the due date to be considered for admission. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Academy Supervisors and/or Academy Counselors.
