    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 Dates (JAB/STEM) and Audition Dates (JAA) will be posted soon. 

    Application windows opened November 12, 2020 at 3 p.m and will close on January 22, 2021. 

    Placement Exams and Auditions will be scheduled during the months of January and February 2021.

    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.  Acceptance Notices of Acceptance will be sent the week of March 1, 2021.  Students will then confirm their acceptance on or before March 12, 2021.
