School Notes

  • Jubilee Academic Center transitioned from a private Christian school of 20 years to a public charter school in 2000. Jubilee is a Recognized Charter School District headquartered in San Antonio that expanded into the Rio Grande Valley in 2011. Harlingen Leadership Academy quickly grew to capacity and opened a second campus in Harlingen, Destiny Leadership Academy, in 2013.
  • Both campuses serve students PreK-5th grade with plans to add a middle school in the near future. Students have the advantages of small (18:1), safe campuses with rigorous academics plus training in leadership/life skills using Steven Covey`s "7 Habits of Highly Effective People."
  • Parents have the unusual opportunity to give their children a unique combination of academics and leadership training in an environment very similar to private schools, completely tuition-free. We offer parents free coffee in the morning while they sit with their children during breakfast. Free breakfast and lunch is provided to all students. We have an after-school program for $4/day until 5:30pm. All our teachers are GT trained in addition to their teaching certification.
