This is a place where foundations are built for life. Whether it's learning to rise to academic challenges or grow in virtue,students at Jackson are challenged and nurtured as learners and loving neighbors, in the spirit of the Gospels and in service to one another and the world.

Founded in 1967 by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston and accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Jackson is a Catholic co-educational institution serving students in kindergarten through grade 6. Located on a historic campus in Newton, the school draws students and families from across the Boston area who are seeking an academically rigorous and supportive learning community grounded in Gospel values.

Dedicated and experienced educators, a comprehensive curriculum, and nurturing classroom environments support the growth of students with diverse abilities, gifts, and learning styles. A robust program of study that includes the arts, world languages, STEAM, religion and physical wellness begins in kindergarten and continues through Grade 6, preparing our students for academic success at the most selective middle and secondary schools in the Boston area.

A Jackson education serves the whole child. It inspires students to love learning, and to also love one another, love God, and love the world around them.
