What We Do Best

Jackson Prep sets the standard for secondary school excellence. After all, “preparatory” is in our name – it is what we do best! Jackson Prep passionately pursues one goal: excellence in all that we do. Our students demonstrate it. Our parents support it. Our faculty and staff instill it. Our alumni testify to it. Over the years, this expectation has developed into a tradition unmatched by any other school in the state. Since our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, it is not surprising that their talents and intellectual strengths are as diverse as their personalities. We value the academic abilities of each student and focus all of our resources on nurturing each of their special interests.

The Prep Family

Jackson Prep could not boast of our success if it weren't for all of the individuals who make up our student body, faculty and staff, leadership, and alumni.
