Parents of Piscataway Township 8th Grade Students:

Does your child get excited about Science,  Engineering or Business activities? Do they spend hours practicing their Visual or Performing Arts skills?  Are they directly involved with these types of extracurricular activities and express desires to explore similar careers?

Well, I am excited to announce the continuation of five (5) educational academies at Piscataway High School for the fall of 2023.

 Our four year academies include:

PHS Business Academy             PHS Engineering Academy           PHS Health Sciences Academy                     PHS Performing Arts Academy     PHS Visual Arts Academy

PHS Academies offer focused curricula targeted to specific career paths. At PHS, academies act as “schools within a school,” emphasizing specialized content areas while simultaneously offering the depth of a larger high school experience. Students enrolled in the PHS Academies will meet all their New Jersey State graduation requirements and have the opportunity to participate in all PHS athletics, arts, clubs, and activities. They also have opportunities to take other electives outside their academy (if their schedule permits).  Acceptance into one of the five academies will expose students to concentrated instruction and pathways to the next steps in their college and career goals. Admission is competitive with selection based on various prerequisites established for each academy.

PHS Academy informational session will be held on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at 6:30 PM in the PHS PAC.  This will be an academy information session only; you will be given all the application details, requirements, and process for each academy.

We look forward to seeing you at our information sessions.
