How Are Students Evaluated in JBA Classes?
Approximately two weeks after the end of the session, students will receive a description of the course they completed and an individualized evaluation. The faculty member will assess each student’s performance in the class, address their academic strengths and weaknesses, and suggests areas for further academic development. Students and parents may wish to send a copy of the assessment to their own school to be placed in a student’s record.
We believe the primary purpose of attending the Joseph Baldwin Academy should be experiencing the unique intellectual stimulation the program provides. For this and other reasons, the Academy does not offer high school or college credit for courses completed.* Students, however, may negotiate with their local school officials for credit or advanced placement.
*Our Introductory College Math course does offer the opportunity for college dual enrollment credit in instances where a student has completed certain competencies.
