College presidents from three Mississippi institutions spoke to faculty and staff yesterday about higher education as part of Jackson Academy’s Professional Development Day. Bill LaForge of Delta State University, Lee Royce of Mississippi College, and Mark Keenum of Mississippi State University addressed the future of higher education and ideas for preparing students for college success.

All three presidents complimented JA on how incredibly well prepared for success our students are who enter their institutions. They also commended the school on the progressive teaching and learning that takes place at JA.

JA Family Funds Scholarship for Prospective Ole Miss Business Student

Jackson Academy seniors pursuing a business degree at Ole Miss have the opportunity to apply for a generous scholarship thanks to the generosity of JA Trustee and alumnus, Phillip Bowman ’86, and his wife, Audra. The Phillip and Audra Bowman Ole Miss First Scholarship in Business provides annual tuition assistance and funds for the student to participate in the Ole Miss First Leadership-Mentorship Program. The selected recipient will be eligible to retain the scholarship each year as long as the student maintains a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average and participates in program offerings.

“We are tremendously pleased that Phillip and Audra are honoring Jackson Academy by offering such a wonderful opportunity to a JA senior,” said JA President Cliff Kling. “This is a true blessing to a deserving student.”

Phillip is a 1986 JA graduate and was the first alumnus to serve as JA Board of Trustee Chairman. Audra has served in numerous volunteer roles at JA. They are the parents of Blaine, Wesley, and Amelia Dare.

The scholarship was first awarded in 2011 to a JA student, Bowen Thigpen ’11.

JA to Make BIG Announcements


Don’t Miss an Important JA Community Event!

Join the JA community at 5:30 p.m. January 15 in the Performing Arts Center for two significant announcements.

  • Refreshments will be served by the JAA.
  • Everyone who attends will receive a gift item.
  • The Student Council will provide childcare.

Don’t miss this event where we’ll reveal the collective thinking and work of our JA community in two important areas.

Mission Statement Revision

Hear the new, revised wording of our historic mission, developed through a careful, yearlong process of gathering input from students, faculty, staff, parents, trustees, and alumni by members of the Mission Statement Task Force.

Here’s a sneak peek of one reaction to the mission statement:

“It gave me chill bumps!” A JA founder, former parent and grandparent

JA Brand Identity

JA engaged Mindpower, an Atlanta based branding and marketing agency, to assist us in identifying and communicating the unique strengths and qualities that make JA the very special school that it is. This branding exercise has not been about developing a tagline or a logo, but instead about discovering and powerfully demonstrating who we are as a school. Mindpower has done that by diving deep into our school and listening intently to focus groups comprised of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and parents. Lisa Jordan with Mindpower will be on campus to present and reveal what they discovered about JA. She has already presented it to the Board of Trustees, and it is very powerful and incredibly affirming of our wonderful school.

Here’s a preview of what to expect:

After hearing the presentation one trustee remarked that, “Mindpower has given a voice and words to all of the deeply-held warm emotions and positive thoughts I have had about Jackson Academy for 42 years.”

This event for all who love JA will surely be a time of celebration and affirmation of Jackson Academy. The JAA started this year with a wonderful focus on uniting the community with the Unite event, and January 15 will be another way we will come together to celebrate The JA Way and all that JA provides to our students, families, alumni, and community.

Join your JA friends and family January 15 at 5:30!
