The global education challenges presented by the COVID pandemic provided the opportunity to re-imagine the academic programs available to the growing population of students at Camden Academy.

As a result of this opportunity, three distinct programs - College Now, Explore Now, and Career Now - were developed to set students on a post-secondary path which maximizes their strengths, potential, and needs.

College Now!

The College Now program prepares students to enter the Camden County College Now Campus Course Program.

All courses that College Now students take count for high school as well as college credit. When the students graduate high school, they will earn a high school diploma from Camden Academy and an Associate’s degree from Camden County College.

Benefits: Get a head start on your career, save money, earn your associate's degree before graduating from high school, spend junior & senior years of high school on Camden County College's Camden Campus

“Being able to complete two years of college before officially completing high school is a really big advantage that I could not pass up. Both of my parents agree that it's a great opportunity for any student.”

Explore Now!

The Explore Now program follows a traditional college-preparatory curriculum, allowing students to investigate career and college options throughout their academic study. Through Explore Now, students enroll in specialized majors within their school: Communication, Applied Business, and Public Service within the School of Business, and Healthcare, Technology, and Engineering within the School of Science. Guided by a team of committed teachers, counselors and administrators, students develop critical interpersonal skills and habits needed for collegiate success.

Career Now!

The Career Now program was developed in Spring 2021 to prepare students for career and trade program enrollment following high school graduation. Students in the evolving Career Now program have the opportunity to participate in exploratory coursework and activities in conjunction with traditional coursework; some students enroll in dual-credit trade and certificate programs in their eleventh and twelfth grade years.
