BCA Prep: Starting in the 5th Grade

The application requirements for the Bergen County Academies and Bergen Tech are…

  • Residence in Bergen County
  • Being in 8th grade at the time of application
  • Submission of 6th and 7th grade transcripts
  • Submission of report card from the 1st marking period of 8th grade
  • Entrance Exam (English and Math)
  • Interview
  • Letters of Recommendation from English, Math, and Science teachers

Applicants are evaluated based on these requirements, as well as school district quotas.
