APPLYING TO BERGEN ACADEMIES?
Over the past 17 years, we’ve guided 165 students into Bergen Academies. This year, our students earned 93 total acceptances to Bergen Academies, Bergen Tech, and Academies at Englewood at a staggering 62% acceptance rate! This is more than all other New Jersey academies combined.
Why Other Academies Fail
Preparing an 8th grader for an admissions exam requires a different, more sensitive approach. Other academies mindlessly drill students, hoping this will get results. That’s why they fail. At MEK, we provide two distinct, goal-oriented sessions of BCA Prep over the course of five months.
Test Prep Is Different for Younger Students
Session 1 “breaks in” the student by developing strong study habits, critical thinking, and skill in Math, English, and Writing – without overwhelming the student or detracting from schoolwork.
Session 2 prepares students for the rigors of the exam: time management, test-taking strategies, and endurance.
This is a fierce competition.
There are approximately 3,000 applicants to BCA and BT every year. BCA accepts around 290 students, and BT accepts around 170. That’s a paltry 15.3% acceptance rate. MEK students have an acceptance rate of 62%!
