Students attending Session I must check out of the residence hall on Saturday, July 2 by 11:00 a.m. Students attending Session II must check out of the residence hall on Saturday, July 30 by 11:00 a.m.  However, parents may choose to check their children out of the Academy immediately following the Closing Reception on the last day of classes.

Students who are going home after the Closing Reception on the last day of classes are asked to check out with the Residence Life Director between 7:00 pm and 8:00 pm.  Staff will begin check-out for all other students on Saturday between 8:00 am and 10:00 am.  All students must be picked up by this time.

Check-out at the Academy

On the last Saturday of the Academy (July 2-Session I or July 30-Session II), Staff will begin check-out for all students at 8:00 am.  All students must be picked up no later than 10:00 am.  If you arrive early, please be patient while staff prepares the details for check-out.  All students will either be in the main lounge or the cafeteria eating breakfast.

The cafeteria will have breakfast available for students and their parent/guardian.  Breakfast hours are 8:15 am – 9:30 am.  Breakfast that morning is included in the JBA tuition for students; however, the parent/guardian will be responsible for their own breakfast.

Packing Up!- After finding your student, you may go with him/her up to their room and begin bringing your student’s belongings directly outside to your vehicle.  Remember to check the closet, bathroom, and drawers.  We do not recommend bringing belongings to the main lounge, as it will already be crowded with other students and families.  If you notice that the room is not properly clean, students can get cleaning supplies from the floor lounge.  But it’s their room; they should clean it, not you!  Once the room is cleaned out, your role is essentially done.  The student will return to the main lounge with the room key.

Items & Room Table – Students will then go back to their room with a Preceptor to double-check that the room is empty and clean and then return to the Main Lounge.  Students will return any items that they may have borrowed from the Hall Desk while at the Academy such as extension cords, iron, etc.

Medical Table – The students will pick up any medication they have left.  Parent will have the chance to talk with the Health & Wellness Director if they wish.

The “Bank” – The students will withdraw any money they have remaining in the Bank, return their room key and be refunded their room deposit key if they choose not to apply this fee towards their JBA Memory items.  The students will also have the opportunity to make any last purchases such as t-shirts, snacks, etc.
