JBA has amazing teachers who geniunly love my kids. My kids love going to school everyday and they have an amazing group of friends.

My son went through the kindergarten program at JBA with the intentions of letting him do a second year of kindergarten in public school. The first week of public school the teacher recommended he move to first grade as he was testing at almost a second grade level in all categories. It was a good problem. Thanks Joyful Beginnings Academy for the top notch education.
