Judson Early College Academy is a fabulous experience anyone could ever experience. To most people JECA is a school for the smart, GT, never getting into trouble type of kids but that is far from true. I won't be the first to admit that this school isn't the ordinary high school and the students that attend aren't ordinary students. It takes a lot o guts to get through a high school like this and maybe you don't have the normal high school experience but in the end you are ahead in life. At JECA you walk across a stage twice, once to receive your associates degree and twice to receive a distinguished high school degree. If one thing could be changed I would want the opportunity to receive an associates in science to come back instead of just having the degree in liberal arts. Attending JECA is an amazing experience and should never be taken for granted because its gets you so far in life.

The extracurricular activities and clubs at Judson Early College Academy is very diverse and welcoming. We have a National Honor Society, Choir, Theater, Flag Detail, Media Club, Art Club, LGBT+ Club, Prom Committee Club, Engineering Club, Robotics Club, and many more. We also have a Spring Fest, Fall Festival, Haunted House, Christmas Extravaganza, and a lot more activities that involve our community. These clubs make us feel important and apart of something, and will have a lasting positive impact on our future.

JECA is such a unique school, it truly is an experience like no other. Although the classes definitely require a lot of hard work, it's safe to say that it pays off tremendously. At JECA not only will you recieve a great education, you will be able to grow close with your classmates because of the small class sizes and the fact that you're with the same 95+ kids your entire high school experience. I would 100% recommend JECA to anyone looking to get ahead in their college education as long as they're committed enough to working hard and dedicating time to their school work.
