About the MADE Program

The Montclair Academic Dual Enrollment (MADE) program connects the community and campus, bringing Montclair High School students to Montclair State University to earn college credits while still in high school. Students take courses across a diverse set of disciplines, including the natural sciences, computer science, math, writing, theater, music, foreign languages, psychology, and the social sciences.

The program allows students to take two courses at Montclair State in both the fall and spring semesters. These 12+ credits count toward their high school transcripts and have the possibility for use toward a college degree. The program has included more than 60 high school students in its first two years of running. Read Montclair State University is MADE for Montclair High School Students for information about the first year of the program.

I dreamed of becoming a doctor and majoring in one of the sciences was my goal, but I wasn’t sure. With this program, I was able to see the level of work ethic and knowledge I needed to be successful as a science major.

MADE is a part of the University’s Early College Program and scholarships may be available.

In 2019 and 2020, scholarships for STEM classes were generously provided by the Josh and Judy Weston Family Foundation, the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) and other advocates of STEM education. Additionally, the Montclair Board of Education further subsidized tuition for students.
