College Prep

Our mission is to prepare students for college, leadership, and life through innovative instruction, a rigorous curriculum, and the use of the cutting-edge technology. Ánimo Jefferson Charter Middle School is committed to the education, development, and socioeconomic success of students who historically have been unlikely to attend and excel at an institution of higher learning.

College Prep Curriculum

We believe that every child must be prepared for college, leadership, and life - and that begins as soon as our students walk in our doors as 6th graders.
