    Mr. Sam Lunz
    Dear JH Classical Academy Parents,
    Our school’s mission is to cultivate within our students the wisdom and virtue necessary to discover and fulfill their God-given potential and contribute to a flourishing and free society. The tasks involved in this process can be challenging at times but also very rewarding. Our students are balancing rigorous and in-depth studies, after school sports and activities, and time with family and friends all while trying to maintain a high level of excellence in their academic and behavioral habits. Our teachers help our students to manage high expectations with a tremendous amount of joy and happiness but that doesn’t mean all of the work is easy and fun.

    Dear JH Classical Academy Parents,
    It is hard to believe we are already halfway through the school year. I can’t help but be thankful for all of the work that our amazing faculty, staff, students, and parents have done to help keep our students learning in person. There is so much that goes into a normal school year; and with this year's additional challenges due to Covid, our perseverance and determination have helped produce joyful students who are learning in a safe, engaging environment.

    Mr. Sam Lunz
    Dear JH Classical Academy Parents,
    This is one of my favorite times of the year! The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are a perfect time to reflect on our many blessings.
    Of all of the blessings and beauty surrounding us, our school community is one of the things I am most grateful for.  Our school is full of kind, curious, and humble students, teachers, and families. There is no place I would rather be, and I am thankful to be a part of each aspect of our school. As a parent, I am grateful for the opportunity for my child to be educated by teachers that care as much about the knowledge she is obtaining as they do about the development of her character. She is surrounded each day by classmates and other students who make up a safe and positive school culture. As a family, we appreciate being part of a parent community that cares so much not simply about good things for our children, but the best things. I look forward to sitting at our dinner table each night so I can hear about the new things my daughter has learned, the games she has played with her friends, and how much she loves school.

    Mr. Sam Lunz
    Dear JH Classical Academy Parents,

    I hope that everyone is enjoying their final few weeks of summer! What a blessing it is to have an opportunity to raise our families in Jackson! My family has enjoyed what might be one of the busiest summers we have ever had. It seems that everyone from our family and around the country wants to be in Jackson just to have a moment to slow down and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation all around us. Throughout the summer we had the opportunity to share the beauty and joy of life in Jackson with grandparents, siblings, cousins, and friends. Despite the constant presence of visitors in town and in our own home, our family was able to take plenty of time for swimming, horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, and many of the other outdoor activities we love.
