Students speak to the world in unique, important ways, and your child’s voice matters. We teach them to be heard.
It Starts at the Very Beginning
Opportunities for the development of communication skills abound at all ages at JA. Communication skills are developed in all divisions through daily classroom interaction. In the Lower School, students are regularly given the opportunity to present speeches to their classmates. In Middle and Upper schools, more formal instruction is offered in presentation opportunities and special courses. Communicative arts give JA students the skills to think and communicate verbally in a technologically and visually-driven era.
Sports Broadcasting Class
The broadcast class offers students in tenth through twelfth grades the opportunity to learn the art and science of professional broadcasting in conjunction with the Raider Network. Students rotate through the roles of director, replay operator, camera operator, and game announcer for JV football, basketball, and baseball broadcasts to find out which they enjoy the most. The students are trained on equipment that prepares them for the field of broadcasting, should they decide to follow that path in college.
