Life at JMA is full...and fulfilling. Students are expected to achieve at a high academic level, as they delight in a process that is tailored to support their creative dreams.
They arrive from towns throughout Greater Hartford and settle into a robust schedule that combines traditional learning with hands-on exploration of media, journalism, photography and graphic design. A typical day is filled with creative expression, collaborative learning, and energetic support from fellow students and faculty.
In JMA culture, everyone lives by the acronym DRUM (discipline, respect, unity, maturity). Students develop as independent thinkers with a sense of personal and social responsibility that enables them to participate successfully in a global economy. They take great pride in their ability to write, research, think critically and utilize advanced technology.
Enthusiasm about what the future holds is prevalent everywhere.
