Judson Early College Academy Reviews
Review Judson Early College Academy
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.
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.
It's a pretty good school. I like how small it is so you can connect with other classmates and teachers. Most of the teachers are okay. There are a few who are spectacular at what they do and you can tell how much they love doing what they do and care for their students. There are also a few that are the exact opposite. The college professors are usually very good with working with JECA students. To me, the college classes are easier than the ones at JECA, but it's because professors can be lazy whereas our high school teachers push us so we can succeed. Both classes at JECA and NLC are rigorous and usually educational. JECA has lots of clubs for extracurriculars but there's not really any athletics or arts. Most of the staff is very helpful and engaging. Food is shipped pre-made and is just heated up so it's pretty bland. JECA is a unique experience, and even with its downsides, it's probably the best place to get an education.
