Welcome to J at School

J at School offers programming right in your child’s school. Students love the time to relax, play, explore and have quiet time to do homework, while parents appreciate the peace of mind and logistical ease of premier, in-school programming. All J at School programs are led by caring, compassionate, highly-trained staff, plus school site leads who are certified in positive discipline through SEL Chicago, a program that provides coaching, courses and consulting to support relationships that build connection and accountability.

Where You Need Us

Our programs operate within more than 15 schools throughout the City of Chicago (and always growing). Take a look at where you can find us!
