The Institute’s mission is to build on the principles learned throughout the NJASCS school system with an expanded, unconventional and multidimensional academic curriculum that will prepare them for future post-secondary education and career opportunities. All participants are expected to dedicate themselves throughout the entire program so that they may walk away with a greater amount of self-confidence, interpersonal and time management skills, and the ability to confidently pursue their personal and professional careers and academic goals.

Daily programs include presentations from educators, interaction with agencies and field trips. The program will include:
• Physical/Exercise Training
