Welcome Back!

Welcome to the new school year at James Baldwin Academy! We are ready for some fun, learning, growth and change.

We have made some changes over the break and so you will see a brand new building on the lower lot! These are our new offices and will be open and ready for use by the end of the month.

We also have a new vocational classroom – the JET program! JET stands for: Jobs, Education and Training.  In this classroom, students will be prepared for graduation and life beyond high school.

We will continue to focus on preparing all JBA students for their transition to less restrictive settings and look forward to a great school year with our students, families, community partners, school districts and staff!

Goooooo Dragons!


2017 Graduation!

Last night we celebrated the promotion of our 5th graders to Middle School, our 8th graders to High School and our High School graduation! Current and former JBA staff were present to cheer on our students as they celebrate these milestones. Thanks to all our families and community members for all you have done to support us and our young people at JBA this year! Congratulations JBA Graduates!Graduation 2017
