The Admission Review Committee (ARC) is a school-based committee comprised of counselors, teachers and administrators. The ARC performs a comprehensive evaluation based on the applicant’s grades, attendance, scores, special skills, talents, interests, letters of recommendation, essay, learning preference and group and individual assessment (by invite). Applicants are selected based on this criteria while considering the demographics of Hudson County. Students/parents/counselors will receive a notification letter in mid-February; students will be notified of their orientation meeting upon acceptance.
