Judson Early College Academy Reviews

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.
I feel as if I have found a home at JECA (Judson Early College Academy). It is a very small school with a population of less than 500 students. There are less than 130 students in each grade level, meaning we all know each other and have connections that are non-existent in any other high school, where there are at least 3,000+ students. On top of that, the academic experience here is fantastic. While the high school courses are intense and challenging for students, there are also college courses that we take. Unlike most early college schools or dual credit schools, we actually attend a physical college campus right next to the JECA campus. I plan to graduate in two years with a high school diploma and an Associate's Degree from Northeast Lakeview College. There is no other place I would rather be than at the Judson Early College Academy.
My experience at Judson Early College Academy (JECA), has been a rollercoaster. When I first started JECA, 9th grade through the middle of sophomore year was like the hill of a rollercoaster. The work were slowing building up, classes were getting harder and harder and I didn't know what the rest of the ride was going to be like until I reached the peak of the hill. As I looked down the hill I saw classes becoming easier and thrillful experiences I was going to indulge in. Going the down the hill was what I expected, exciting and joyful, throughout the rest of sophomore year and now junior year. I'm enjoying every moment of JECA but I can't wait till the end to see my captured photo (my high school diploma) afterwards.
Besides the work and fun of my high school, the only change I would like to see at JECA is more college visits, since we the students are always told to visit colleges we may be interested in going to.
