Admissions

Prospective students must be in eighth grade and full-time residents of Monmouth County.


Prospective students, accompanied by a parent/guardian, must attend an information session. You may attend as many information sessions as you like for any of the 5 academies to help you decide which school is for you. You must attend the information session for the school you apply to and be present for the entire information session.


At the information session, you will receive a registration code and information on how to access the online application. Once your application is submitted online, you will receive the confirmation page and application checklist. You must print the application checklist and provide it to a school official. MCVSD must receive the application checklist and transcript or your application will remain incomplete.


All applicants will be required to take an Admissions Exam.


Picture ID is required for testing.

The exam will consist of mathematics concepts and writing/language arts skills.  Each part will be scored on a scale of 1-35.


Disclaimer: Please note that the Monmouth County Vocational School District does not endorse, nor has an affiliation with any company/organization soliciting students to take a review class and practice test in order to prepare them for the MCVSD Career Academy Admission Test.


The highest scoring applicant from each district pool will be offered admission. District pool is the resident public school (excluding regional high school districts) that an applicant resides in at the time of application. After these applicants are offered admission, the next highest scoring applicants from the applicant pool will also be offered admission.
