About the Learning Program

The mission of JNLA is to nurture students who are intrinsically motivated to prepare themselves for college and their future careers. By integrating relevant thematic units and real world applications through an emphasis on developing artistic talent and exploring multicultural studies, students will understand civic responsibility and the impact they can make on the global network as genuine agents of change.

Designed as a community-based school, we will welcome all cultures and ethnicities, community stakeholders, and constructive ideas to help promote the success of the students and the establishment of a solid college-going culture. Educators will work collaboratively with each other and community partners to deliver locally designed and enhanced lessons, which utilize proven instructional strategies and theory. The success of the school will rely on the commitment and inspiring partnerships formed between the focused student body, passionate staff, skilled faculty, dedicated parents, and involved community members.
