Jubilee Academic Center is a non-profit organization authorized by the Texas State Board of Education to operate, Jubilee Academies (Jubilee), an open-enrollment Texas charter school district.

About Jubilee Academies

Jubilee began in January 2000 with 60 students on one campus in Bexar County.  Current geographic boundaries include the Rio Grande Valley Region, Coastal Bend Region, South Central Region, and Central Texas Region.  Jubilee serves nearly 6,000 students at 12 sites within its boundaries.

Campuses within the Jubilee Academies charter school district have a culture for academic excellence and accentuate Stephen Covey’s “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” through Covey’s Leader In Me program.

In addition to academic excellence and a leadership emphasis, students are taught positive character traits to prepare them for success in life as they learn to build relationally with their peers.
