Our Traditional Events

Throughout the year, NJASC sponsors several major events for the students and advisors of New Jersey to convene, network, share ideas and best practices, and hear nationally recognized speakers that motivate and inspire. An annual summary of these major events throughout the school year is provided below.

STUDENT LUNCHES
Unfortunately, we can no longer offer the all-you-can-eat student picnic as it has become far too cost prohibitive. However, for the same price as last year's student lunch ticket we can offer the "Mega Meal Deal" ticket - this consists of one meal, a snack, and a beverage at their choice of locations (CLICK HERE to view a list, provided by Six Flags Great Adventure) throughout the park.

  • $25 per student

UNUSED TICKETS - KEEP THEM...
Park admission tickets for the Spring Awards Program are valid through August 30, 2024. There are NO REFUNDS for unused park admission tickets due to reductions or no-shows, but you can give the tickets to students for use on their own at a later date. There are no refunds for unused Mega Meal Deal tickets.


Please note that Six Flags Great Adventure is now CASHLESS! If students do not get their lunch through NJASC, they are advised by Six Flags park management to either bring a debit card with at least $40 pre-loaded on it to purchase food on their own, or cash to obtain and load a debit card at a kiosk in the park (there's likely to be lines for this).
