Academics & Activities


JRLA provides a leadership-focused education that engages and inspires youth to achieve at the rigorous level necessary to ultimately graduate with a college degree. Scholars are provided with an authentic academic experience which builds both the skill and will necessary to be successful in high school and beyond. Immersed in the culture of college, scholars will not only receive extensive college exposure via university tours, but also be required to pass at least one Advanced Placement course to assist in a seamless transition into college.

Support Programs

Top Activities

In addition to academic credit, JRLA requires all scholars to earn enrichment credit in order to be promoted or to graduate. To support scholars in earning this credit, we offer a robust and diverse series of extracurricular programs and activities designed to intentionally cultivate key non-cognitive capacities and soft skills linked to a variety of improved life outcomes.

Academic Offerings

All JRLA scholars must take at least one advanced placement course in order to graduate. Advanced Placement (AP) courses are classes designed to expose scholars to the rigors associated with college level courses. In May of every year, the College Board holds national tests for AP scholars. Passing these examinations can earn the scholar college credit.

School Safety Culture

The Scholar Code of Conduct (SCC) establishes expectations that create a learning environment conducive to positive development. The creation of a safe and respectful environment with rigorous standards of personal accountability is both conducive to effective teaching and learning and is the bedrock of non-cognitive development which is the cultivation of skills that are not necessarily found on a test, yet are most important to success and well-being. When the SCC is practiced properly, classrooms and hallways become places where scholars can develop a growth mindset, feel a sense of belonging, recognize the purpose of their work, and find a clear path to self-belief.
