Academic Resource Center
“Empowering students to unleash their potential for optimal achievement.”
At Jackson Academy, our commitment to providing an education to all students is core to our culture and mission statement. Through our Academic Resource Center program, we offer several tiers of instructional support to qualifying students. The purpose of the tiered support is to meet the student where they are currently functioning, supporting the whole child on their educational journey.
Lower School (K3-K5)
