Who is Eligible?

JBA students performing a challenge in the opening weekend scavenger hunt.

Enrollment for the on-campus Joseph Baldwin Academy experience is limited to students who will complete the 7th, 8th or 9th grade at the conclusion of the 2020-2021 academic year and who are high achievers as indicated by GPA, IQ, enrollment in gifted courses, high standardized test scores, or equivalent measurement.

To qualify as a Distinguished Nominee, a student must be identified as a high achiever as indicated by GPA, IQ, enrollment in gifted courses, high standardized test scores, or equivalent measurement, and be nominated by his or her school’s principal or counselor. NOTE: Students who attended the Academy last year will be automatically nominated for 2021 JBA. They do not need to be nominated again.

Home School Students: Home school students may be nominated by a parent. Parents will need to supply a GPA, IQ, high standardized test scores, or equivalent measurement, and provide a copy of the student’s curriculum plan from the last two years. The Dean will handle such students on a case-by-case basis. School Counselors are encouraged to alert home school students in their area about this opportunity.
