The true success of Jones Academy is what happens
inside. Since Jones Academy essentially serves as home for
its students, every effort is made to include many aspects
of stable, productive lives outside the school day. Students
at Jones are provided the same opportunities and experiences
they might find in a supportive and stable family environment.
