Welcome to the Explorer Early College Academy Homepage!
Last year, Brookdale Community College and the Hazlet Township School District reached an agreement to offer the Explorer Early College Academy to incoming freshmen at Raritan High School. Brookdale and the HTSD are guided by similar visions, missions and values; the commitment to educational access and attainment for all permeates both institutional cultures. The organizing principle of the ECA is the collaboration of people and resources to create new higher education opportunities for Raritan High School students. The ECA is intended to provide entry into higher education for academically-prepared high school students beginning in the 9th grade affording them the opportunity to concurrently earn an Associate of Arts degree while also achieving their high school diploma.
