At Tiger Academy, a free public school, we believe school should be more than a place to learn reading, writing and arithmetic. We approach the education of each child with a commitment to helping him or her grow in spirit, mind and body.
Tiger Academy focuses on rigorous academic standards, character development, personal and social responsibility and strong family involvement, while providing each child with a structured and nurturing learning environment. The learner-centered culture includes a 7 ½ hour school day (8:00 am – 3:30 pm) and a 195-day school year, with before and afterschool care available.
Through a unique partnership with the Johnson Family YMCA, Tiger Academy’s students enjoy enrichment opportunities and benefit from family support services.
Tiger Academy provides, not only a high-quality education for the children growing up in northwest Jacksonville, but the encouragement and support they need to succeed. For more information on Tiger Academy’s School Accountability Report, click here.
Tiger Academy, as well as the Florida DOE, makes safety a priority. FortifyFL was created and funded by the 2018 Florida Legislature as part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act. FortifyFL is a suspicious activity reporting tool that allows you to instantly relay information to appropriate law enforcement agencies and school officials.
Tiger Academy earned the school grade of a “D” for the 2018-2019 school year.
