Middle/High School Academics

Jackson Michigan School

High School

JCHS is characterized by rigorous curriculum, high expectations, and teachers who are dedicated to the individual success of each student. We choose to remain focused on the foundational tenants of education. We have found that our focus continuously produces students who are well prepared for the academic demands of college. Year after year more than 90% of graduating senior pursue college degrees. Feedback from JCS alumni confirms that we commonly graduate students who are “wordsmiths”, meaning they are known for superb written and verbal communication skills which often place them ahead of their peers.

Middle School (6th, 7th, 8th)

The transition years of Middle School provide a great opportunity to equip students with the academic knowledge and life skills needed for high school success. Faculty who are especially gifted with middle school age students help them achieve their academic best. Our curriculum includes time management skill development, allowing students to progressively develop the organizational and accountability skills necessary as their work load and expectations increase.

Students perform better academically when they are empowered to relate well and with respect towards one another. Middle School years are often characterized by adults as the most difficult years of school. We purposefully address relationship challenges by equipping students with biblical tools to cultivate healthy peer relationships. Class Charters, special courses, and retreats all focus on developing God-honoring relationships which improves our student’s ability to succeed academically.
