Jackson Prep of Jackson, Mississippi has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates for strategic planning services during the 2014-15 academic year. Our work will commence in October. This will be the second strategic plan that ISA has developed for the school.
Jackson Preparatory School is an independent, co-educational, and college preparatory day school enrolling 810 students in grades six through twelve. The school is located on a 74-acre campus east of Jackson and is the largest independent secondary school in the state of Mississippi. The student body is diverse, representing various racial, ethnic, economic, and religious groups.
Specializing in secondary education since 1970, Jackson Preparatory School (Prep) has produced 547 National Merit semifinalists, including 10 from the class of 2014. Statewide, Prep is one of four schools selected for a cum laude chapter, the high school equivalent of Phi Beta Kappa. Students consistently win regional and national awards in language, literature, art, mathematics, science, music, and drama. In athletics, Prep teams remain among the leaders of the conference in overall championships.
With Prep joining forces with ISA, the academic year is shaping up to be quite a special way to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. ISA's first two clients - both Carolina Day School in Asheville, North Carolina and Jackson Prep - have selected our firm for strategic planning during our 10th year. What comes around goes around!
