  • The Jackson School District Academy of Business requires summer assignments be completed prior to the beginning of the semester during which you will take your Academy course(s). 

    It is our belief that the summer represents an important opportunity for students to strengthen their skills in core subjects and to better prepare them for success during the school year.
