The JPEC Difference...


Jackson Preparatory & Early College presents students with a rigorous curriculum. Classroom learning experiences are enhanced by a combination of highly qualified teachers and specialized educational software and programming.  The district curriculum is designed to help students reach collegiate academics standards and is vertically-aligned with a logical progression from 6th-grade all the way up to college coursework.  JPEC challenges students to ask questions, construct new knowledge, confront assumptions, take learning risks, and develop self-awareness through Essential Academic Practices that are developed to be cross-curricular, in order to help students develop the skills needed in life throughout all their content areas.


JPEC is a new kind of school.  A school where learning is continuous and every student may advance at his or her own pace, with quality, personalized curriculum, support, and the opportunity to end with a college associates degree.  JPEC offers a year-round academic program providing for more instructional days and hours than is required by state law.  The school year begins after Labor Day and ends in late July.

Students will progress at their individualized pace with skills and content material, with the ability to advance with successful demonstration of competency has been achieved.
