The LEAP High School serves students in grades 9-12 and has established an impressive record of college preparation and placement for all of its students and graduates.
the LEAP High School is setting new standards of excellence for the City of Camden and the region. A rigorous college prep curriculum and a strong college access guidance staff are the main ingredients in sustaining the LEAP High School program.
All LEAP High Schools receive a laptop for their use throughout their educational trajectory. Students use the laptops for their own research, practice and make the virtual connections that are needed for them to learn, apply and innovate. They also get access to a number of services through the College Access Center and receive college prep support such as SAT Prep courses, exposure to colleges and universities, and ongoing support with college applications and financial aid.
During the 9th and 10th grades, students take core foundation courses. By the 11th grade, they choose an academy and focus in a specialized track on one of the three options—STEM, Liberal Arts/Social Studies, and/or Business. The focus is on simulating the college experience by having students take general coursework followed by a major.
A Fabrication Lab provides the space for students in all tracks to engage in multi-disciplinary, project-based learning. It also becomes the site for students to engage with faculty in culminating capstone courses that integrate various disciplines.
