High School Departments Philosophy

Pillars Preparatory High School is not just a place of learning; it's a place where dreams are nurtured, talents are honed, and students are empowered to reach their full potential.
At Pillars Prep we are committed to providing an education that prepares our students for the challenges and opportunities of the future. Our dedicated team of educators is passionate about fostering a love for learning, critical thinking, and character development. We believe that every student has the potential to make a meaningful impact on the world, and we are here to guide and support them on their journey.
Our high school offers a comprehensive curriculum that encompasses a wide range of subjects, from the sciences and humanities to the arts and technology, hifz, islamic studies and arabic. We believe in providing our students with a well-rounded education that not only equips them with academic knowledge but also instills important life skills, such as problem-solving, communication, and leadership.
We understand that high school is a pivotal time in a student's life, and we are committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment where all students feel valued and respected. Our school culture promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we celebrate the unique backgrounds and perspectives that each student brings to our community.
Pillars has partnered with Middlesex Community College to offer a Dual Enrollment Program for our Junior and Senior Students at Pillars.
Juniors and Seniors take their core classes (English, Math, Science and Social Studies) at the college level at Middlesex Community College (MCC). Transportation to and from MCC is provided for the students. The classes are scheduled during the school day. Students in the Dual Enrollment Program can receive up to 8 college credits a semester as a Junior, and up to 10 college credits a semester as a Senior. If students attain a grade of C or above, they can most likely have these credits transfered to a 4 year university for college credits. Juniors and Seniors take the remainder of their classes (Islamic Studies, Quran, Arabic, Gym and Electives) at Pillars.

The PSAT 8/9 is designed specifically for 8th and 9th graders and serves as a practice test for the PSAT/NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test), which is taken by 10th and 11th graders. It assesses the same skills as the PSAT/NMSQT but at a level appropriate for younger students.
-Offering the PSAT to 8th and 9th graders can be beneficial in several ways:
-Early Skill Assessment: It allows students to assess their academic strengths and weaknesses early in their high school careers, helping them identify areas for improvement.
-College Readiness: It introduces younger students to the format and content of the SAT, which is a key component of the college admissions process in the United States.
-National Merit Scholarship: It can serve as a qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship program, which can lead to scholarship opportunities for high-performing students in their junior and senior years.
-Test Practice: It provides valuable test-taking experience, helping students become more comfortable with standardized testing.

MAP Testing

MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing is a widely used assessment tool in education, often administered in middle schools and other grade levels. MAP testing is designed to measure students' academic growth and proficiency in various subjects, such as mathematics, reading, and language usage. MAP testing is a valuable tool for educators to gauge student learning and make informed decisions about instruction. It helps ensure that students are receiving the support they need to succeed academically, particularly in crucial subjects like mathematics and reading, which are essential for future educational attainment.
