Judson Early College Academy Reviews

All Categories
Judson Early College Academy is quite an interesting experience for me. From being super focused on academics to walking and taking college colleges at Northeast Lakeview College, the whole school in general is rigorous. As a current junior, JECA is heavily stressful along with the college classes we go to. Freshmen are not used to the transition of middle to high school, sophomores have a little bit easier, juniors are in the most stressful year, and seniors are anticipating the acceptance letters from college. Even though there are so many stressful factors in the curriculum, I thoroughly enjoyed the school in general (except the food). The school itself has many wonderful aspects, but there are so many things that could be changed such as the food and amount of homework given to students. Little to no students are able to enjoy any free time unless you are highly diligent working on assignments without any distractions whatsoever.
Review Judson Early College Academy
Judson Early College Academy provides a great academic program for students of all backgrounds, and has a college readiness plan that was one of the first of its kind almost a decade ago. Although it lacks in sports and activities, the core of JECA's purpose remains an integral part of the student body; no student is bound to struggle with the multitude of resources provided by Judson ISD and Alamo Colleges. Most importantly, safety is the number one priority at this institution, and it is shown through the various safety procedures and drills done monthly by the students and faculty.
I am last year's graduating class for this school and now as an alumni I am able to fully appreciate the opportunities I was able to come into by completing the program. The school's integration of college courses with honors classes introduces and places students under the rigorous schedule of a college student. The thought of being in such a program intimidated me at first but the small campus allows for a sense of community and an opportunity to form personal relationships with students and staff that would assist in academic enhancement. Overall, the school has a great mission and exemplary staff and administration that care about the students and actually push them towards post-high school success.
