This is not a magnet school, please take the time to learn and ask questions about this system. The academy concept allows the JCHS to maintain its identity while taking the large faceless crowd of students and turning it into smaller separate units were the kids can find their identities and be more involved in their high school education. By focusing the students learning on a topic they are already interested in, they are more likely to succeed. Perhaps the school district could add a "What is an academy?" answer to the FAQs page on the website. They have their work cut out for them in this traditional community.
