Sister School in Jubilee Blanc

Frederica Academy has an official Sister School - the Jubilee School (Academie la Saline) in Jubilee Blanc, Haiti.
The Jubilee School was founded in 2009 by missionaries and teachers from southeast Georgia. The School's mission is to nourish the bodies, minds and souls of the children of Jubilee Blanc. Jubilee Kids is the non-profit organization that provides support and manages the funding for the School and Jubilee Nutrition Program, which provides the students' meals.
Jubilee Kids is based in Brunswick and receives support from local churches, businesses and individuals.
Our Sister School partnership with Jubilee formalizes a relationship that started in 2012, when Frederica Academy helped establish the Jubilee School library by furnishing it with equipment and supplies. In the past two years, the bonds between the Jubilee School and Frederica Academy have strengthened, as the second grade students from each school have exchanged pen-pal letters and videos that travel back and forth with mission teams originating from Brunswick. In 2014, the seventh grade technology and art classes created products, which they marketed and sold, to raise funds specifically for Jubilee playground equipment.
Dottie Barrow, Frederica Academy Technology Director, represents our school on the Jubilee Kids' Board of Directors. Dottie was instrumental in establishing our relationship with the Jubilee School and has participated in several mission trips to Haiti to visit the school since it was established.
