JLSA provides a relevant and challenging curriculum and a learning environment that encourages children to see their differences as their greatest strengths.
JLSA follows the requirements and guidelines of the North Carolina Division of Non Public Instruction. We offer a college preparatory curriculum, and have partnered with Central Carolina Community College to offer high school/college credit courses. We also offer an entrepreneurial and vocational education for students with different objectives.
JLSA develops an individual approach for each child that will the student to progress at their own pace, be that faster or slower than the labels of grade level imposed in public education settings and provide an extended Horizon's Program.
We offer a one teacher to five student ratio and require students with additional needs to have support provided by an aide. Our integrated arts curriculum is the most efficient and engaging way to address a multitude of learning and sensory integration styles while fostering social skills.
Our school bases achievement on mastering skills through our curriculum and individualization of those goals on the academic and developmental continuum. Children are in multi-aged classrooms and a thoughtful environment that focuses more on the process than the product. Parents are invited to meet twice annually and given progress reports at the end of each semester.
