Mission Statement

The mission of Jonas Bronck Academy is to shape an intimate, supportive, engaging school community where parents are partners; where teachers inspire learning with passion and commitment; and where all of the adults model-and all the scholars develop and live-our core values of respect, integrity and dignity.


School Vision

At Jonas Bronck Academy, our students become scholars and fall in love with learning.


We create an environment where scholars challenge, question and learn how to find answers.

We nurture the safe haven where scholars feel safe, supported and understand the importance of community.

Ours is a school where we model respect, integrity, dignity and professionalism for the children we serve.

Parents are our partners. Their presence in our classrooms and their support at home are essential to each scholar's success.

We work to prepare scholars to live the future of their dreams. We are an exemplary college preparatory middle school.

JBA is the opportunity of a lifetime.
