JP Schools ASAs are designed to expose the most highly capable students to a challenging, rigorous, and accelerated curriculum. The academies focus on high-potential students who are successful in gaining admission through the ASA admissions process. Successful candidates are challenged with opportunities in abstract thinking, problem-solving, and the use of higher-order thinking skills. Our academies employ a school-wide enrichment model, differentiated instruction, and use highly engaging project-based, hands-on instructional techniques.
