John Adams Academy is a TK-12, tuition-free public charter school with a mission to honor America’s heritage by developing servant leaders. Great minds in history studied other great minds in history. Scholars at John Adams Academy do the same. From Aristotle to Jefferson, our scholars delve into the virtues, philosophies, and habits of the men and women who’ve left their marks on humanity. 


  If space becomes available in a grade, the empty seat will be filled from the current wait list. 
To enroll, please visit our online enrollment system. 
For questions about enrollment: 




You do NOT need to complete applications for scholars who are currently enrolled.  Scholars who are currently enrolled at John Adams Academy are guaranteed admission for the following school year and will complete a separate re-enrollment process.  Additional information on re-enrollment through the data confirmation process in  your Aeries Parent Portal will be provided at a later date.
