Brand Guidelines

The JA brand is a symbol of excellence, tradition, and pride. With each use, whether on a car decal, a T-shirt, in advertisements, or other marketing materials, we communicate who we are as a school and the values we represent as a community.

To this purpose, all materials representing the school should be reviewed and approved through the Marketing and Communications Department according to the guidelines set in our Graphic Standards and Style Guide.

Before using any of the Jackson Academy logos or marks, a written request must be sent to the Marketing and Communications Department (news@jacksonacademy.org) along with context and description of how JA’s branding will be used. No changes to any aspects, colors, designs, or elements of the Jackson Academy marks are permitted.

Elements and Symbology

Many of the elements of the crest are rooted in Jackson Academy history, with four particular elements carried forward from the previous two JA crests. The top portion of the crest takes its shape from the first JA crest. The flame, book, and founding date are classic elements of previous crests.

BOOK WITH FOUNDING DATE
Founding Book

Represents Jackson Academy’s founding for the purpose of teaching reading by phonics. The date is placed on the book to connect our founding date with our founding purpose. This represents the quest and thirst for knowledge.

RISING SUN
Rising Sun

Represents both spirituality and innovation, and draws inspiration from Luke 1:78-79:

(NIV) “[B]ecause of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.”

The rays of the sun also represent enlightenment, reaching outward signifying exploration, innovation, and new beginnings each day.

Chevron
Chevron pointing up

Mimics the roof of a house and derives from the French word for rafter. It signifies protection, family, and home and was awarded for faithful service or accomplishment in heraldic tradition.

LIVE OAK WREATH
Acorns

Symbolizes tradition and the tree of learning. JA students play and learn under the shade of prominent Live Oak trees lining the front of campus. The wreath has 18 oak leaves on each side, coinciding with the typical age that a student completes his or her education at JA.

ACORNS
Single Acorn

Represent growth and potential. An acorn develops into an oak tree, which is originally small but has much potential for growth. In the same way, Jackson Academy begins with the limitless potential of its youngest students at age 3 and inspires and equips them to lead lives of purpose and significance. The four acorns represent the four divisions of the school, indicating each division is instrumental in nurturing the potential of each student.

Torch
Torch

Represents learning, carrying a torch into the world. The lamp and flame were in each previous JA crest. The flame shown atop a torch, rather than in a lamp, represents our students carrying the torch into the world and passing it on to others, a key aspect of a purposeful life and one of true significance.

Color Palette

Three primary colors make up the Jackson Academy color palette–navy, light blue, and light gray. An additional gray maybe used if a darker shade is needed. In addition to the primary color palette, a group of secondary colors may be used. Before using the secondary color palette, please submit a request to the Marketing and Communications Department.
