Becoming a Patriot
We invite you to start your Patriot journey!
JC accepts students who are motivated to meet the rigor of college-prep work, eager to learn and succeed in an academic environment and whose personal qualities make them a good fit for our community. Candidates are evaluated on:
- Middle school performance including academics, conduct and attendance
- Standardized test scores
- Teacher recommendations
- Performance on the High School Placement Test (HSPT)
But that’s not all we consider. We know each student is more than a sum of grades and scores. We want students who can show that they’re willing to lead; who seek to collaborate when solving problems; who incorporate critical thinking; who see strength in diverse perspectives and most of all, who can maximize every opportunity to create their own Patriot story and make their mark on the world.
Application for the class of 2026 and transfers for the 2022-2023 school year will open in September! If you are interested in applying for the 2021-2022 school year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that students who are also applying for acceptance to special academic programs may need to complete additional recommendations. Space in those programs is limited, and best consideration is given to those who complete the application prior to the December 17, 2021 deadline.
