At Jackson Christian Elementary, a traditional approach to teaching is used with a strong emphasis on reading, math, and language.

Through daily Bible classes, chapel and the examples of teachers, high ethical and moral standards are reinforced and spiritual guidance is provided. Believing that home and school working together can best serve the child, the elementary teachers and administration maintain close communication with parents. The high percentage of parents actively involved in school activities produces a close-knit family atmosphere.

Jackson Christian offers an orderly, yet flexible atmosphere, where behavior is important and teachers reinforce the positive. If you want your child to be safe, happy, prepared academically, and challenged, make an investment in their education. Check out Jackson Christian Elementary!

All kindergarten through 5th grade students are exposed to computers, art, music,  foreign language, and physical education. A librarian interacts with each class, adding another dimension to their development.

At Jackson Christian Elementary our constant focus is on our mission to provide a quality values-oriented education in a Christian environment. Jackson Christian exists to serve. With that service, we support the values of truth and righteousness that you want demonstrated before your children--the same values you teach them at home.

Daily spiritual activities build our students into individuals who are aware of God's presence and direction in their lives. We teach the benefits of prayer and a genuine love for our fellow man. Students stay busy doing service projects, including things like singing at nursing homes, collecting food for dialysis patients, raising money for St. Jude, collecting house shoes for children at LeBonheur, and writing letters of encouragement to those who are sick. Our parents generously volunteer their time to help with these special service-oriented projects.

Besides our focus on academics and spiritual growth, elementary students are involved in activities that build character. Many of our students enjoy participating in the P.A.L League and Jackson Parks and Recreation Soccer Leagues, and a large number of our parents are involved in coaching. First and Second graders can participate in the "Little Eagles," a basketball performance team.
