The JumpStart Program helps Academy faculty assess each student's needs, and provides prospective students and parents an opportunity to experience the Academy's educational structure and expectations. 

The JumpStart Program takes place every Saturday from March 9 - April 13 from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM at Saint Ignatius Loyola Academy. Note: there will be no JumpStart program on Saturday, March 23, 2019.
