JBA offers highly talented students a head start on their future university careers by allowing them to spend three weeks as college freshmen: they move into a residence hall, adapt to living with a roommate, eat dorm food, make new friends, attend classes, and work with Truman State’s faculty.


The primary goal of the academy is that students leave with an increased appreciation for the pleasures of education, intellectual engagement, and the college experience. Along the way, students grow both academically and socially as they interact with other high-ability students from across the country.
