Achievers Early College Prep Charter School (AECP) is New Jersey’s first public charter school for students in grades 6-12 that provides them with the unique opportunity to take a two-year course of study in STEM fields following the 10th grade, enabling them to redefine the high school experience and graduate with skills, experiences, and content mastery that’s significant to them in the market place and the world beyond.
AECP wants to make it possible for students in Trenton to earn, at no or low cost:
A High school diploma
Up to 60 transferable college credits
An associate’s degree
Workplace learning, credentials and internships
This alternative to a traditional middle and high school is founded on the belief that many underserved minority students are not prepared early enough for college and competitive STEM studies. They tend to lack the emotional and financial resources to apply to, enroll in, and complete degrees of study that will be professionally and financially rewarding in the long run. Achievers Early College Prep benefits from the leadership and experience of New York and New Jersey-based charter school operators, teachers, college professors, community leaders and early college school leaders.

Students from low- and high-income communities aspire to complete their postsecondary education at similar rates. But those from low-income communities, the majority of whom are students of color, face enormous systemic barriers to earn their degrees, an injustice made worse by COVID-19. As a result, hundreds of thousands of young people transition to adulthood without the skills, experiences, and credentials needed to build careers and lives of their choosing.
Boys of color and their sisters, will soon comprise the majority of students in American schools, and those who educate them must become more accustomed to their social, emotional, cultural and academic needs.

Back in 2006, undocumented students had little information, resources, and support to help them pursue higher education. As teachers and mentors, Carrie Evans and Katharine Gin found out that undocumented students were excluded from most opportunities available to their native-born classmates, such as government financial aid, loans, and most private scholarships. Carrie and Kathy started Educators for Fair Consideration (E4FC) to support undocumented students, at the same time as undocumented students were advocating for opportunities to learn and improve their own lives. In 2018, we changed our name to Immigrants Rising to better reflect who we are, what we represent, and where we are headed.
