Choice Program

The Glassboro Public School District, in partnership with Rowan University, offers Academy programs in Fine and Performing Arts, STEM, Bio Medical Studies, and Business Leadership. Glassboro Academy students enjoy an immersive university experience designed to prepare them for success in a globalized world. Students can walk across the street to earn college credits, develop study skills and professional habits, and cultivate their passions at the highest level.  

The Glassboro Fine and Performing Arts Academy (FPA) is a dual credit program with Rowan University that allows Glassboro students to make music and be creative artists alongside university students and professors. The Rowan Community Music School, also a partner in this program, provides specialized, individual instruction for Academy students in grades 7-12.  Students typically become eligible to enroll in university courses in their junior and senior years. 

The Glassboro Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Academy challenges students with an intensive curriculum in a variety of technical courses that begin in grade 7.  Students receive instruction in advanced mathematics, modern sciences, and other preparatory electives, before advancing to Rowan University to concentrate in one of three primary tracks: Computer Science, Engineering, or Medical Arts.   

The STEM Bio Medical Academy is a specialized program that similarly prepares students for careers in medicine and healthcare. Beginning in grade 9, students take advanced courses in medical science, anatomy, and physiology, along with a variety of highly specialized, hands-on classes.

The Glassboro Business Leadership Academy (BLA) is a path to a successful career in Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Management, Economics, and/or general business. The Rohrer College of Business at Rowan University provides additional opportunities for students to network and interact with successful university students and faculties. This program will begin in fall 2022.

 

Choice Seats Availability

The purpose of the chart below is to inform parents of choice seat availability before the application deadline in early December. After the deadline, the information will be outdated.

The Department of Education limits the number of choice seats that each district can fill. The “maximum number of new choice students that can be enrolled” tells parents how many new choice students the district can enroll in the next school year. If more than the maximum number of applications is received, a lottery will be held and a waitlist will be developed. Waitlists will be developed for all approved choice grades even if no seats are currently available. NA indicates the district is not accepting choice applications for those grades.

Maximum Number of New Choice Students that can be Enrolled: 5

District Choice Policies

Indicate Yes/No/NA 

The district accepts Tier 2 students (see definitions of Tier 1 and Tier 2 ).

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have a sibling currently attending the choice district, provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have completed the terminal grade of the sending district (i.e., students who attend a choice district with grades that terminate before 12th grade and have a natural progression to this choice district), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 N/A

The district gives enrollment preference to resident students who move before the application deadline. If resident students move and file choice applications for the following year prior to the deadline, the district will give them enrollment preference (i.e., accept them after the enrollment preference students described in b. and c. above, but ahead of other applicants), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria. If the district has already reached its approved choice enrollment maximum, this preference will not apply.

 Yes

The district gives special consideration to resident students who move after the application deadline. Students in this situation may apply as late applicants and be added to the front of the district’s waitlist, provided the students will enroll in a choice-approved grade/program and they meet any program-specific criteria. No additional choice seats above the maximum will be approved by the NJDOE to accommodate these students.

 Yes
