NAF Academy Night: September 26th, 5:45-7:30 pm

As many of you know, academies are an important part of Jackson-Reed’s academic culture.  We boast of 10 academies, but we know that some of them have different designations.  Eight of them are CTE (Career-Technical Education) pathways. Seven are NAF Academies, and two are specific to Jackson-Reed. So many acronyms! So confusing, right?

To help ease the confusion and to celebrate being together for a new year, the NAF Academy team is going to host a NAF Academy Night on September 26th from 5:45-7:30pm. Please save this date and time on your calendar. Our objective of the evening is to fill bellies with ice cream (and sorbet) sundaes, celebrate student work, and really outline what our academies are all about and how they will operate here at Jackson-Reed.

If your student is already in an academy, please come! If you are a 9th and 10th grade family who is considering an academy, please come! If you are an upperclassmen family who isn’t in an academy, but have a child in middle school planning to attend Jackson-Reed, please come! 

If you haven’t RVSP’d yet for this event, please do so by Monday, September 22nd—this will help us plan accordingly. 

You can RVSP here.
