JCA Application

We must have successful neighborhood schools within urban communities

   We Believe

  • All children are created by God and loved by God.
  • Each child is a unique being with God-given talent, ability, and potential.
  • A child’s ability/potential is not limited by race, social class, income, or geography.
  • A child’s potential is only limited by lack of opportunity, low expectations, and lack of hope.

   JCA Students

  • Will be able to read at grade level at the end of their second year.
  • Will receive a biblically-integrated academic curriculum.

  • Parents will participate in a no-excuses parental involvement for parent/teacher conferences, volunteer hours, and school events.
