"Mrs. Grimes and her great staff of caring teachers provided my darling 5 year-old daughter with an outstanding Pre-K and Summer Camp experience.  My daughter spent a full year at The Jackson Academy and my family could not be more satisfied.  My daughter LOVED her time there! Everything about TJA exceeds the highest levels of quality.  I am very grateful for the professionalism, joy, and TLC that Mrs. Grimes and the teachers devoted to the students, each and every day. THANK YOU!"

The Jackson Academy provided my daughter with a loving, caring, and well structured environment for learning and play. The whole staff knows every child by name, not just the children in their class; it’s like an extended family.  Socially and academically the transformation was a joy to watch. My daughter loves going to school, and has loved all of her teachers.  Thank you to The Jackson Academy for providing a great introduction to school.
