  APPLICATION  

Prospective students must be in eighth grade and be full-time residents of Monmouth County. There are three steps to the application process.

  1. Prospective students must attend an information session accompanied by a parent or guardian. These information sessions are offered four times a year in September through November. Prospective students may attend as many information sessions as they like at any of the five Career Academies to help decide which school is right for them. Regardless of how many information sessions a student attends, they must attend at least one information session at the Career Academy they plan to apply to. For more information, please visit our Information Sessions page.
  2. Prospective students will receive a registration code and information on how to access the online application at the information session they attend. Once students successfully submit their application online, they will receive a Confirmation Page and Application Checklist that they will need to print and provide to a school official. If you do not receive a confirmation page, the application checklist, or are still able to access the application, it was not submitted properly. It is the applicants responsibility to ensure successful submission of their application and late applications will not be accepted. Monmouth County Vocational School District must receive the required application checklist and transcript or the student may be ineligible. Students may only apply to one of the five Career Academies.
  3. Students will be required to take an admissions exam.
