To be eligible for acceptance into NJHS, students need to maintain an overall average of 89.5% in their core academics subjects for all of 6th grade and the first three quarters of 7th grade. Once a student is academically eligible, they will be notified that they are under consideration to be accepted and will need to complete a Personal Statement. A faculty advisory council will review the Personal Statement, and vote on candidates based on how well they demonstrate leadership, service, character and citizenship.
