Why Apprentice University?
Consider these three key features of the Apprentice University experience.

We strive to provide avenues through which the next generation can fulfill their potential. We desire to equip young people to become motivated, professional, and flourishing men and women of character.

An Education Like No Other
JumpStart provides an education unavailable anywhere else. In just one year, I have grown both academically and relationally. The opportunities I have had have shaped me and opened doors I never knew existed. I would definitely recommend JumpStart to every student who desires the most in-depth education.
