Starting in September of 2023, there is officially an all girls middle school in Jersey City. Girls’ Preparatory Academy is a college prep middle school for girls only with a college culture. It is co-located in Dr. Charles P. DeFuccio School, P.S. 39 which is right on the West Side of Lincoln Park. (P.S. 39 is located on 214 Plainfield Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07306).
Superintendent Norma Fernandez discussed the topic in the Jersey Journal stating that for all worried P.S. 39 parents, the new program will not displace any P.S. 39 students. In fact, Fernandez explained the school is under capacity and has a lot of extra room right now. It is also in a central location of Jersey City which makes it a great place for the Girls’ Preparatory Academy.
Parents can join one of the Academy’s open houses for school information sessions, application information, tours, and to ask questions:
Saturday, April 22, 9-11 AM

The JC Girls’ Preparatory Academy is attached to an organization called “The Young Women’s Leadership Schools.” They have other locations nearby, such as their school in the Bronx. To see their rankings, (state-test scores and more) click here.
One thought on “New All Girls’ Preparatory Academy in JC!! (accepting applicants this fall)”
Great to see more options for Jersey City students. Nice summary.
