Our Out-of-School and Summer Camp programs provide students with an opportunity to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences.  Children are engaged in a stimulating yet comfortable environment with homework help, physical activities and a healthy snack.  Activities have included soccer, jewelry making, gardening, martial arts, dance, drama, music and science.


We believe that family stability and engagement are keys to academic success.  As a result, Jack & Jill’s Family Strengthening programs and support services are available to all Academy families.  The families of all of our students are expected to participate in our family program and are encouraged to participate in our Parent Council and volunteer with the school.  Teachers communicate with parents regularly through conferences, growth plans, progress reports and quarterly report cards as well as through phone apps designed to increase parental engagement.


Our school is open to all families and many of our students attend the school on scholarships provided by the Florida Step Up for Students program.  The Madelaine Halmos Academy staff at Jack & Jill can help answer your questions and guide you through the application process.  More information can be found at:
