Jackson Christian School

  • 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.
