  • All textbooks and consumable workbooks;
  • Membership in the Jackson Academy Association;
  • Apple computing device including apps, software;
  • School sponsored activities and field trips in which all students in a grade participate, including examples:
    – Grade level field trips, picnics, and activities;
    – K3, K4, K5 tea parties;
    – Lower School themed picnics and events;
    – Little Dribblers;
    – Class days;
    – Field Day t-shirts and water;
    – 5th grade Global Wildlife trip;
    – 6th grade Heifer International trip and Memphis trip;

    – 11th grade WWII Museum trip;
    – Supplements a large portion of the 5th grade Mississippi River trip;

Covering these activity and field trip fees is intended to be a convenience for our families rather than asking them to write multiple smaller checks throughout the year or purchase food for such events. Elective co-curricular and extra-curricular activities will still continue to require separate fees that are paid only by the participants in those optional activities.

For families who pay tuition monthly, the consolidated fee will be split over three months and drafted in June, July, and August.

Affording a JA Education

Investing in your child’s education is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give. Need-based tuition assistance is available to qualified students who desire a Jackson Academy education. Jackson Academy awards tuition assistance to the extent that funds are available. Those who plan to apply for tuition assistance must be accepted or enrolled at Jackson Academy prior to making application. Students must be in good academic standing to be eligible for tuition assistance. Tuition assistance applications are due each year on February 15 for the following school year, and tuition assistance information is available from the Office of Admissions by emailing

Jackson Academy is committed to protecting the privacy of its families; therefore, all information received by the school is held in the strictest confidence. Only the Tuition Assistance Committee has access to a family’s application materials. If tuition assistance is awarded, the Business Office, Accounts Receivable, would be made aware of the award.
