Is there a dress code?

What if I am interested in having students at both campuses?

JCS was pleased to open our East Campus in 2018, moving our Pre-K through 1st grade classes to this brand new dedicated early learning environment. Many of our families have students at both locations and as such the administration takes great care when planning events at each campus. For example, drop off and pick up are slightly staggered to allow time for families to get to both campuses. Our West Campus (2nd – 12th grade) is located at 700 S. Delaware Blvd, just 2 blocks off Indiantown Road. Our East Campus (PreK2 – 1st grade) is less than a mile down Indiantown Road on the corner of Indiantown and Pennock at 125 S. Pennock Lane.

For admissions inquiries, please contact the appropriate Admissions Director below. For families with students at both campuses, our West Campus admissions staff is pleased to serve as your one admissions liaison.

Does JCS allow Home Education students to participate at JCS??

By taking one or two academic courses, Home Education students will also be able to participate in the majority of our extracurricular offerings, such as athletics, arts, chapel, retreats, and more. Contact our Admissions Office at (561) 354-1929 for more information.

Does the school have opportunities for parent involvement?

Yes, we absolutely encourage parental involvement in many ways. Parents are welcomed at the school: involvement in our Parent Teacher Partnership, chaperoning field trips, helping in the cafeteria, being a room parent, helping in the office, or by taking home projects such as folding, labeling, and stuffing envelopes.

What sports are offered?

Currently, we offer 26 sports for our middle shool, Junior Varsity, and Varsity Teams. Approximately, 70% of Upper School students participate in JCS Athletics. For more information, please visit our athletics’ web page.

Lower School students may also participate in our co-ed intramural offerings including: soccer, flag football, volleyball, cheer, and basketball.

Does the school provide accommodations for students with learning differences?

Yes, admission of a student at Jupiter Christian is based on prediction of their ability to handle a challenging academic curriculum. For this reason, before accepting or re-enrolling a student with any identified learning difference, the school must have current testing information, which will be reviewed by a committee prior to admission or re-enrollment to assess the possibility for success for the student. If the student is accepted or re-enrolled, the school will accommodate the student's learning needs through special services provided the school has the availability and appropriate resources within that program. Additional fees may apply.
