Frequently Asked Questions
Camden Big Picture Learning Academy, formerly MetEast, is a small public high school open to all students in Camden city. We educate one student at a time, so each student’s curriculum is determined by his or her unique interests, background, and learning styles. All students work on projects in real-world settings related to their interests and develop strong relationships with teachers and project mentors. In short, the community is viewed as a classroom. CBPLA enrolls families, not just students!
Interest and Career Exploration is the school’s focus. Upon enrollment, students identify their interest and pursue their passions by engaging in rigorous work in the surrounding community.
