Following are some of the benchmarks our programs aim to achieve taken from NJ State and national standards in Science, Math, ELA and History/Social Studies. These standards promote the skills and concepts required for college and career readiness in multiple disciplines.


NJ State Standards


Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to inform about or explain the topic.

MATH Standards for High School, Complex Number System N-CN

Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems.


Understand that an expression is a record of a computation with numbers, symbols that represent numbers, arithmetic operations, exponentiation, and, at more advanced levels, the operation of evaluating a function. Creating an expression that describes a computation involving a general quantity requires the ability to express the computation in general terms, abstracting from specific instances.  Reading an expression with comprehension involves analysis of its underlying structure.


Common Core National Standards

MATH Standards for High School, MODELING

Modeling links classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work, and decision-making. Modeling is the process of choosing and using appropriate mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations, to understand them better, and to improve decisions. When making mathematical models, technology is valuable for varying assumptions, exploring consequences, and comparing predictions with data. Examples include:
  • Modeling savings account balance or investment growth.
  • Analyzing risk in situations such as extreme sports, [or financial investing]
  • Use probability to evaluate outcomes of decisions

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSS.MD.B.5. Using Probability to Make Decisions

Weigh the possible outcomes of a decision by assigning probabilities to payoff values and finding expected values.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy in Social Studies.RH.6-8.1

Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources.
