High School Profile

J.A. Secondary is a Choice Enrollment school with student priority placement listed below (per J.A. Board Policy 8.1).

Students are accepted on a space available basis and must meet the minimum expectations of a successful student.

Successful Students at Jefferson Academy

  • Demonstrate a high level of character
  • Perform academically at grade level and/or higher
  • Are highly motivated to achieve
  • Take pride in meeting deadlines

ALL families who wish to enroll their child(ren) in Jefferson Academy Secondary MUST either re-sign their child at JA (current 6th and 8th grade students & grandfathered wait lists) or fill out a Choice Enrollment Application for each child during the First Round Choice Enrollment window set by the Jefferson County District.

A parent of a current 6th grade or 8th grade student MUST stop by the office any day during the first round window and re-sign your child(ren). If you do not re-sign your student during this time period, your student will be dropped from the wait list and will have to participate in choice enrollment should they wish to return as a student for the next school year. Jefferson Academy is not responsible to remind parents of the re-sign time or its requirements.

 

J.A. student priority placement is:

1. Current J.A. students (current 6th and 8th grade parents, if you do not re-sign your child they will be removed from the list) and staff children.

2. Siblings (lottery if necessary)

Sibling priority will be given to a prospective student if they have a currently enrolled sibling at Jefferson Academy that intends to return the following school year. Any student who receives an enrollment spot because of sibling priority will have their spot rescinded should the currently enrolled “sibling” withdraw or transfer prior to the start of the following school year.

3. Grandfathered wait list (if any) and qualifying siblings of students admitted during this process. If you do not re-sign your child they will be removed from the list.

4. Choice enrollment, first round in-county (lottery) and qualifying siblings of students admitted during this process.

5. Choice enrollment, first round out-of-county (lottery) and qualifying siblings of students admitted during this process.

6. Choice enrollment, second round in-county (first come, first served) and qualifying siblings of students added to the wait lists during this process.

7. Choice enrollment, second round out-of-county (first come, first served) and qualifying siblings of students added to the wait lists during this process.

Students who are enrolled after June 1st are not guaranteed a seat in honors English, Social Studies, Science or Math. Should a student wish to be considered, teacher recommendation forms and/or testing must be completed.

Please note that transportation is NOT provided for students at J.A., and that a change of schools may affect athletic eligibility.
