What is the Consortium?
The Consortium for Pre-College Education in Greater Newark is a collaboration between the Newark public school district and the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Funded by the New Jersey Higher Education, the Consortium aims to provide educational programs and college bound activities for over 700 students in grades six through twelve.

The Consortium offer a broad array of educational programs to students interested in going to college.
