What is Jefferson Academy?

Jefferson Academy (JA) is the Jefferson County School System’s alternative school program for grades 6 through 12. It was founded in the summer of 2009 with collaborative support from Jefferson County Juvenile Court System, Carson-Newman College Cherokee Health Systems and other community agencies. The program is supported by an advisory board of representatives from community agencies. The school system provides the teachers, school curriculum, and all academic functions. Current capacity of JA is 65 students serving Jefferson, Maury, White Pine, and Rush Strong Middle Schools as well as Jefferson County High School.

Who is Jefferson Academy Designed to Serve?

Jefferson Academy was established to serve eligible Jefferson County middle and high school students who have been targeted for expulsion or long-term suspension, or for “at risk” students who are having a great deal of academic, emotional or behavioral problems. The Principals from each school refer these designated students to JA. Once designated for placement, an intake interview will be scheduled with the student and parent(s).
