Our History

Jubilee Academies, a free public charter school district began in January 2000 with 60 students in San Antonio, Texas. Current geographic boundaries include the Rio Grande Valley, Coastal Bend, South Central, and Central Texas Region.  Jubilee serves nearly 6,000 students at 12 sites within its boundaries.

Jubilee Academies schools 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.

The Jubilee Way is used to describe the how and why of what we do.
