Employment Opportunities

One common thread weaves its way through faculty and staff experiences: JA’s community has impacted their lives in a positive way.

Welcome to Jackson Academy’s Online Application page for faculty and staff positions. Settled in the Sheffield Drive neighborhood of northeast Jackson, Mississippi, JA is an independent, college preparatory day school serving grades K3-twelve. The 38-acre campus has been described as one of the finest school environments among the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools.

While location and facilities are important, the heart of a school is made up of teachers who know students individually and care about them personally. Southern Association of Independent School surveys tell us our faculty do just that. JA’s 200 professional faculty and staff serve just under 1,200 students. And this year, The Clarion-Ledger’s Best of Mississippi poll named JA “Best Place to Work” and recognized Lower School Teacher Harriett Eppes as “Best Teacher.”
