Discover our School

George Jackson Academy is a transformative environment – a place for bright boys from all incomes to thrive in a culture of challenging academics, supportive community, and social and moral development. Founded in 2003 to serve academically capable boys in grades 4 through 8 from across New York City’s underserved neighborhoods, the school aims to counter the “fourth grade slump” when ongoing forces lead promising young men to disengage from school.
