Does the school provide accommodations for students with learning disabilities?

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 disability, 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 available to the student’s family by additional financial arrangement (in addition to accommodations available within the classrooms) provided the school has the availability and appropriate resources within that program.

Does JCS provide transportation?

Currently, JCS provides transportation service to and from Royal Palm Beach and Palm Beach Lakes area. This service is provided for a fee of $1500 annually. The Royal Palm Beach campus of Christ Fellowship located at 9905 Southern Boulevard will be our drop off and pick up location with a second stop at the Wendy’s on Palm Beach Lakes Blvd. This service was put in place following a school closing in Wellington and will continue to be offered as long as a minimum of 7 passengers exist.
