Why All Boys Education?

Our namesake, George Jackson, spoke frequently about the power of his single-sex education. He remembered the times he spent with his “brothers” in an environment that was tailored to how boys learn. At GJA, we provide our scholars schedules, curriculum and culture specifically targeted for the way boys learn. As the nation’s gender gap widens, girls score higher on tests than boys, resulting in higher high school and college graduation rates. GJA is a place where boys don’t need to compete against girls. GJA alumni succeed in diverse co-ed learning environments after leaving GJA because of the confidence and growth they gain after their three years with us.
