The Wings Program equips Jackson Christian to serve the individual needs of our students. The program includes Quest, Soar, and Harmony.

We realize that every child has been uniquely designed emotionally, socially and cognitively by God. We want to embrace their uniqueness, find their strengths and help them reach their full potential. The Wings Program allows us to meet a broader spectrum of academic needs.


HARMONY 

Since its inception in August of 2003, Jackson Christian’s Harmony Program has provided excellent service to qualified special needs students. This highly successful program is designed to meet the needs of students who desire to attend a Christ-centered school, but are unable to successfully meet the rigorous academic expectations. 


Jackson Christian believes that students who have special needs should be assisted to experience success and should be challenged to strive toward their maximum potential. This program, Harmony, is offered to elementary, middle, and high school students. Special programs, such as this, require an extremely low student-teacher ratio. This necessitates an additional expense for these students.


I Peter 3:8 - "Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another, be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing."


SOAR

The Soar program is designed for gifted students in the 4th -5th grade. This class includes critical thinking, creativity and hands-on curriculum. Each child must have an IQ test, 95% on two NWEA test, and a gifted checklist completed.
