SOMERS POINT — Chartertech High School will host an Open House 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10. All eighth-grade students or current high school students considering a transfer and their parents or guardians are invited to come see what makes Chartertech such a unique atmosphere for young artists.

In addition to a college preparatory academic program, AP Program, and dual credit (college) courses, Chartertech offers six distinct artistic majors that allow our artists to develop specialized, marketable skills while attending high school. The result of this educational experience is that students are prepared to attend the college or university of their choice or take their skills directly into a career in the arts.

Chartertech is committed to providing an arts-focused high school education to young adults who thrive in a creative environment.
