On behalf of the faculty and staff I would like to welcome you to our web page, your gateway to
everything you need to know about James Madison Preparatory High School. JMPHS is a STEM
(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) focused college preparatory institution that carries an
excellent reputation in a small atmosphere, making JMPHS conducive to individualized student and
Located within walking distance to North Florida College, many of JMPHS students take advantage of
dual enrolment opportunities for traditional college degrees or highly sought after technical degree and
certification programs. The close proximity enables students without transportation to take advantage
of two years of college while attending their Junior and Senior High School years. Students are
encouraged to take advantage of our advanced curriculum, especially in the areas of math and
engineering as well as opportunities offered by Florida Virtual School when their advanced interests lay
outside the school’s offerings.
Since its creation as Madison County’s only charter high school, JMPHS has continued to build on its
reputation of offering opportunities to a wide range of learners. The faculty and staff are committed to
providing as much energy as necessary in order for our students to become successful in an ever
changing and competitive world.
Developing leadership skills in the image of our namesake is a critical part of the commitment James
Madison Preparatory High School has to our community. Without helping develop quality and caring
young leaders, all the knowledge we consume will never be fully understood or accepted by their peers.
Whether you are a current or prospective member of our school community, we encourage you to
explore our offerings and please don’t hesitate to contact the school for a personal tour. Questions and
suggestions are always welcome.
Mark Akerman, Principal
