Real World Academy guides each student to identify his or her passions and goals after high school.
Unlike other companies that focus solely on GPA or SAT and ACT scores, we take a more holistic approach. We teach students the necessary skills needed for both an academic and professional setting. By learning critical life skills including time management, networking skills, and how to build a resume, students gain a fresh perspective on how to succeed, no matter their college choice or career path.
Our services are customized to meet the needs of our students.
We provide counseling services in five general areas:
Today’s students have so many options to consider as they explore professional careers or vocational programs. Our agents work one-on-one with students to understand their skills, interests, and values.
College Application Process
Navigating the college admissions process can feel overwhelming. Creating a list of schools, managing application deadlines, securing recommendations, and writing essays are just a few items on a rather lengthy college checklist.
Real World Academy offers each family access to an online college planning platform and mobile app, making it easy to manage tasks and deadlines.
Job Related Skills
We are committed to ensuring that EVERY student has the resources they need to achieve their full potential after high school. From writing a resume to preparing for job interviews, our agents help students get ready for the real world.
Freshman Year Transition
Unlike most counseling services, our work doesn’t stop after an accepted application. Freshman college students face more decisions as they transition into college. The lack of a more formal structure can be overwhelming for many students.
Prep for Undergraduates
Real World Academy administers a local undergraduate mentorship program, "Newark College Institute," which provides its participants with real world professional and personal development skills and exposure to various career opportunities and industry leaders.
