Message from the Principal
Welcome to the Juniata Park Academy Website. We are excited about having the opportunity to showcase all the exciting projects that are taking place at our school. Our school is the shining star of Hunting Park Avenue! We have a diverse population of students who are eager to become productive citizens in a global world. Our staff and students have the most up to date technology at their fingertips. Classrooms are equipped with computers and Promethean boards (interactive white boards). We have so much to offer our community.
At Juniata Park Academy our staff realizes the importance of teaching the whole child. Today, more than ever young people need caring adults to help guide them through life's challenges. These caring adults are called mentors. They are parents, teachers, coaches, tutors, pastors and neighbors. They are the people who always take the time to listen, guide, support and help our young people. Who mentored you? I urge you to thank them and pass it on! Why not become a mentor? Our school is always seeking volunteers! I invite you to come and visit and lend us a helping hand.
