  • Tuition Assistance: The Flexible Tuition Program

    Jackson Prep believes that qualified students who desire a Prep education should not be denied that opportunity because of economic hardship. Therefore, Prep has established the Flex Tuition Program to help families in need. Flex Tuition is awarded strictly on the basis of need. Jackson Prep does not award any athletic or academic merit scholarships.

    The Flex Tuition program requires that each family complete an online application to the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) in Princeton, NJ. This national independent school service provides a financial evaluation of the family’s resources. Based upon available funds, Prep attempts to meet the demonstrated need as reported by School and Student Service for Financial Aid.

    Decisions on admission and tuition assistance are separate. Regardless of financial need, parents should proceed with the admission process as soon as possible. School and Student Service for Financial Aid Forms are available to current recipients beginning in November and to new students upon acceptance. Applications for tuition assistance should be begun by February 1 and completed by March 1 of each year of enrollment.

    For further tuition assistance information and to begin the analysis process, visit the School Scholarship Services website. For questions regarding the process of tuition assistance, email or contact Samantha Bowling at (601) 939-8611 ext. 251.

Thank you for the opportunity to prepare your child for college and life beyond. Our mission, “to inspire and challenge our students toward academic, athletic, and artistic excellence, instill in them personal integrity through biblical values, and equip them to pursue lives of distinction in service to society,” is at the very core of our name, Jackson Preparatory School.  We consider it an honor and privilege to help our students discover their possibilities and potential.  

Your Board of Trustees takes your financial commitment to Prep and your choice to enroll your student with us very seriously, and we are confident that we provide more value per dollar than any other school in the state. Our commitment is to maintain the highest level of educational and extracurricular experiences for our students.  As noted last year, in implementing our strategic initiative to balance offerings and affordability, while beginning to grow our endowment to help moderate tuition growth and structure now and in the future, we maintained tuition for grades 8-12 and lowered tuition for grades 6 and 7.

As such, once again the Board of Trustees has established that all grades 6 through 12 will not have a tuition increase for the 2022-2023 school year.  For grades 8-12, tuition will remain at $15,573, and for grades 6 and 7, tuition will remain at $12,120 for the 2022-2023 school year. The challenges of the past few years have impacted us all, and we are hopeful that keeping our tuition at its current level will benefit all our families.

Again, we are excited to continue to implement this strategic tuition plan for the 2022-2023 school year.  We are grateful for your philanthropic support, which has helped this plan come to fruition. To this end, the quality of the Prep experience will not be compromised in any way by the new tuition plan. The value of a Prep education is evident through the return on your investment throughout your child’s future.

Our college acceptance rates are 100%, and our students are well prepared for the academic rigor of college and university expectations. Scholarship opportunities are consistently available for Prep students—85% of the students in the class of 2021 received merit-based scholarships. The senior class was offered $14.7 million and accepted $6.1 million in scholarships.  Our students join a vast network of alumni and community leaders and connect their passions through offerings that are unique to Jackson Prep. This promotes the development of soft skills and creative thinking along with leadership attributes—all crucial competencies colleges are seeking and finding in Prep students.
