Jackson Christian is leading students in continual learning that grows from a foundation of faith in God and modeling the teachings of Christ in every aspect of life.
Our mission is to lead students to love God by providing a quality, values-oriented education in a Christian environment.
Jackson Christian began in 1976 with 56 students in grades 1-8. In 1979, the school moved from its first location at the Central church of Christ to its present location, a beautiful and spacious 41.3-acre campus on Country Club Lane. The student population of more than 850 reflects a geographical, denominational, racial and ethnic diversity of West TN. We are deeply motivated in all facets by our faith in Jesus Christ. We are firmly committed to reflect God’s unconditional love for all people. Biblical principles serve as our ultimate guide as well as goal. It is important to us that every word, action, and attitude of Jackson Christian employees, representatives, volunteers, and students be consistent with and in furtherance of our Christ-centered purposes: both publicly and privately.
All activities, which Jackson Christian pursues, are for the dual religious purposes of glorifying Christ and furthering our Christian mission, message, and viewpoint.
Our commitment to our faith is outlined in, but not limited to: the Parent/Student Handbook, the Teacher Handbook, the Board Policy Manual, the Mission Statement, and the Purpose Statement.
