Academic Recognition and Application Process

More than 100 colleges and universities send representatives to Rutgers Prep annually to meet personally with our graduating students.

In recent years, Bucknell University, Duke University, Johns Hopkins University, and Purdue University have each selected Rutgers Prep to host their central New Jersey regional evening program for prospective students.

88% of last year’s seniors applied to at least one college through an early action, early decision, or priority application program.

85% of the Class of 2018 had good news in their pocket before they headed home on winter break (meaning they had received at least one offer of admission as a result of filing an application through an early or rolling admissions plan).

73% of last year's seniors are attending their first or second choice college or university.

Average number of applications filed per student in 2018 — 9.7
