Jubilee Schools have a ten year history of success in changing children's lives. The first school opened in 1999. The eight Jubilee Schools are in challenging parts of Memphis and as a result of opening each school the community around each school has visibly improved. The majority of these children are from households of income averaging $14,000. Each family pays a tuition that is based on a sliding scale, and every family makes a financial investment in their child’s education. All students receive financial assistance.
