Jackson Academy has been amazing. Between the students, teachers, and staff, everyone can find where they belong. Although the school is private and therefore smaller than most schools, it has opportunities in athletics, arts, academics, and extracurricular like the outdoor club or the chess club. As an AP student, I feel as if the school has greatly prepared me for my exams and has shaped me into a better student. The teachers care for their students' wellbeings and often come to our events to support us. The school has a very supportive, loving environment that causes you to become a better and more well-rounded person without even realizing it.

Jackson Academy is a great school but unfortunately, it has fallen into the same bucket as MRA. A once great school (top 3 in state) that will see its eventual collapse academically because of athletic obsession. I came to JA to escape MRA's disdain for intuition, creativity, academic extra curricular activities, and academics in general. JA will be in total ruins in six to seven years if not much sooner if they continue to attempt to rid themselves of the thing they always had, a wonderful academic environment. If only JA would realize that things like business electives, pre law clubs/or class, debate teams, and such are what will save the school; not allowing students to reach their academic potential will be their death if not the crime of the city of Jackson and their obsession with sports.
Jackson Academy is an excellent college preparatory school. I've always felt welcomed. I love all of the class options at Jackson Academy. The classes will make you extremely prepared for college!
