Mrs. Baranyk is no longer sponsoring JSA, please contact for JSA info for the 2015-2016 school year.

JSA is a student led organization that encourages students to engage in political debate, discussion, and internships.  JSA is non-partisan and has students who feel affiliated with every party you can think of.  If you want to work on leadership skills, become more comfortable with public speaking, laugh until it hurts, and meet a smart and fun group of students JSA may be the club for you.

We meet every Monday after school in room 1203.  Students may join at any time during the year.

We take several trips during the school year.  In the fall we attend an overnight conference in Madison, WI.  In the winter we attend an overnight conference in Washington, D.C..  Depending on funding and ability we may also attend a conference in Oak Brook, IL.  Additionally, there are a number of "mini-cons" throughout the year at various high schools which are single day events.

If you have further questions please email JSA President:  Misha Bogdanov (
