• District Administration Overview

    The Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders established the district in 1914 to fulfill the need for occupational training in the county.

    Today, training a workforce for a rapidly changing economy is an issue of vital importance for our nation’s economic health and continuing social stability. The District Administration for the Middlesex County Magnet Schools helps to ensure the continued quality of our local and national workforce.

    We provide a pool of employees to our county. Approximately 79% of graduates work in the county. The district offers career programs with courses at the:

    • high school level
    • post-secondary levels
    • adult evening school
    • apprenticeship programs
    • extension programs in the community or in business and industry
    • there are also many programs that serve special education students.

    High school students must meet all the academic requirements for graduation that are mandated by the New Jersey Department of Education and obtain a marketable skill to enter the competitive labor force. Graduates receive a New Jersey High School Endorsed Diploma (for full-time students); certificate (for shared-time students).
