Frequently Asked Questions

What is the curriculum based on?

The course is based on our heralded Bergen County Academies / Bergen Tech prep program. This means your 8th grader will strengthen their knowledge of key concepts, solidify foundational skills, and grasp core concepts in addition to gaining invaluable experience with digital test-taking.

How much daily/weekly time will my child need to dedicate to this program?

The lectures will be two hours weekly (one hour for Math, and one hour for English), and students will also be taking weekly BCA/BT simulation tests for two hours weekly, for a total of 4 hours dedicated to the program itself. However, students are urged to dedicate at least two hours weekly to preparing for the tests and lectures to make the instruction as effective as possible.

Are there any prerequisites or tech requirements?

Students need to have access to a computer in a quiet setting. They also need to have their own non-school-affiliated email address.

Using this email address, we will set up students’ Canvas accounts. We use Canvas Instructure as our main learning management portal. In this portal, students will receive all materials, communicate with their teachers, and access the class itself.

How does the program accommodate different learning styles?

As the program is a live virtual class, class engagement is key. MEK teachers are heavily trained in methods to keep each student engaged in the class, accommodating each student’s unique learning style toward the singular goal of the BCA/BT Entrance Exam.

What if my child misses a week or falls behind?

Students who are absent for a session that they are registered for will be provided with a recording of the class that they missed after they submit the simulation test that the lecture is reviewing.

How will I monitor my child's progress?

Parents are able to make an account in the Canvas Learning Management Portal to observe their students’ progress. This will give parents access to the gradebook and all submitted assignments.

Once the 10-week program ends, is there any follow-up support or further resources available?

After the 10-week program, students are recommended to take our High School Honors and Core Reading & Writing courses in order to continue their digital exam training toward both school and standardized exam success.

Is the program adaptive to changes in the digital exam landscape?

The curriculum is updated every year to reflect any changes to the digital exam landscape.

How will this program help in real exam settings?

This is precisely the goal of BCA/BT Fast Track!
