The Jonesville Academy offers educational programming for underrepresented minority males every other Saturday during the academic year. The youth in the programs learn from certified teachers and receive mentorship, along with the opportunity for additional support for parents and within schools. We receive support from our partners in the Warren County Public Schools, Bowling Green Independent School District, and WKU College of Education and Behavioral Sciences.
Primary Subject Areas
(1) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
(2) Reading and Writing
(3) Exploring Languages, History, and Cultures
Experienced K-12 teachers deliver the Jonesville Academy curriculum. Thanks to the generous support from Warren County Public Schools and Bowling Green Independent School District, up to nine instructors will be recruited for the program. In addition, the Jonesville Academy partnership with the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences encourages WKU student teachers to assist in the classroom.
