At JCS our aim is to prepare our graduates for the rigors of college and beyond.
With a student-teacher ratio of 15 to 1, and more than 63 percent of our current faculty holding a Master's degree or higher, we can give our students the ability to maximize their chance of future success.
The 69 graduates of the JCS class of 2011 will soon descend upon college campuses across the country.
Our seniors will enter the next phase of their education with confidence that they have been prepared for their bright future.
The top 20% of our seniors earned an average score of 28 on the ACT. Through our Dual-credit program many of them will enter their freshmen year with more than 20 college credit hours under their belt.
While these students are busy buying bedding and other necessities for their dorm room, their parents are resting a little easier knowing that their child received a part of the more than $3.4 million in scholarships awarded to our 2011 graduates.
