Jackson School District Academies of Learning

  • The Jackson School District has developed academies of learning to offer students a focused pathway of instruction in a particular field of study during their high school years.

    Entrance into our academies is competitive. Students must complete an online application and, in some cases, take an entrance exam, audition or be interviewed. Exam (JAB/STEM) and Class Requirement (JAA) regarding scheduled dates, times and locations will be posted soon.

    Students may apply to more than one Academy, but must complete a separate application for each Academy. Academy classes are offered at both of our high schools.

    Come and JOIN US for our JSD Academy Parent Information Night.    This is for current eighth grade families at both the Goetz and McAuliffe Middle Schools.    The event is scheduled for:

    WEDNESDAY - OCTOBER 24th, 2018 from 6PM to 7PM at Liberty HS in the Fine Arts Auditorium.
