8th Grade Information: High School Opportunities

As you may be aware, there are a number of programs that your student may choose to apply to for high school. Please note that these programs are completely optional. Each student will be registered with the high school that he/she is districted to attend regardless of whether or not they apply to one of these programs or a private school.

Last week, a representative from the Freehold Regional High School District was here to present the Magnet Programs and the International Baccalaureate Program offered. Linked below are the presentation and handouts from that assembly. For further information, please visit frhsdmagnetprograms.com.

In addition, there are a number of Career Academies that are a part of the Monmouth County Vocational School District. Linked below is the brochure. For additional information, please visit https://www.mcvsd.org.

Please take the opportunity to review these programs in more detail and attend the open houses as indicated in the coming weeks.

If you would like to discuss this matter in more detail, please reach out to your child’s guidance counselor, Mr. Durante at gdurante@freeholdtwp.k12.nj.us or Ms. Waldron at awaldron@freeholdtwp.k12.nj.us.
