At NJCDC, education is just another word for opportunity. We operate a number of educational initiatives designed to help local residents open their minds and reach their fullest potential.
NJCDC founded and supports the operation of three schools:
Additionally, NJCDC is the lead agency in Paterson's first Full Service Community School at Public School 5, offering a variety of programs and services designed to keep the school open late, on weekends, and during the summer to support student success and to strengthen families. The agency also runs a 21st Century Community Learning Center, Compete for Life, at John F. Kennedy Education Complex, to equip students with the skills they need to succeed in life.
