    Overall Experience: Judson Early College Academy is probably the best decision I've made in the longest time. Even thought I'm only a sophomore, I expect things to get better and worse for me. I remember freshmen year was a pain for me since I wasn't mentally ready for this. But now already spending a year and a half there, I know what to do to get through the four year challenge.

    Overall Experience: Honestly, I had a lot of fun at JECA. It was definitely challenging, but you come out better when you're done. An Associates degree right out of high school was worth the the challenges.

    Resources & Facilities: The school is wide ranged for students to roam.
