Welcome To Jefferson Davis Academy

On behalf of the entire Jefferson Davis Academy family, welcome to our website! 

Jefferson Davis Academy provides a strong academic education, but beyond that it emphasizes values necessary for true success in today's ever-changing world.  One of these primary core values is the commitment JDA makes to provide a college preparatory education in a Christian environment.

Having been in existence for over 50 years, JDA benefits from decades of success,and we believe Jefferson Davis Academy has a very bright future. We continue to see our current families and students that come from local and international locations embrace the culture and believe "greater things are yet to come."  We desire to prepare the next generation of leaders so they are well-equipped for their life's work.  At JDA, students graduate with so much more than a diploma!

After exploring our website, we encourage you to visit our campus and see what Jefferson Davis Academy has to offer.  We would enjoy the opportunity to meet you.  We Are....JDA!
