Trenton, NJ – The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) approved two new charter school applications. Each approved charter school applicant must now complete the NJDOE's preparedness review before a final charter is granted and the school is allowed to open. This review determines whether the approved charter school applicant has the academic, fiscal and organizational components in place to ensure high-quality educational outcomes for each and every student.

If final charters are granted in July 2018, two new charter schools would open for the 2018-19 school year: Achievers Early College Prep Charter School located in Trenton, and Middlesex County STEM Charter School located in Perth Amboy.

There are currently 89 charter schools operating in New Jersey, with 56,201 authorized seats.

The approved charter applications are:
