Principal's Message

Dear Jones Family,
On behalf of the faculty and staff, welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Jones College Prep High School. I am looking forward to working with all of you to provide our students with the opportunities, guidance, and support they need to succeed in school and in life.
The mission of Jones is to help students develop themselves as leaders through a rigorous college prep program that focuses on educating the whole person. We strive to help students, teachers, and parents realize the joy of learning for all our students and to facilitate in any way we can the intellectual, emotional, civic, and social development of young people.
To ensure our goal of student success, the faculty and staff of Jones work closely and collaboratively with all stakeholders to realize our vision of the ”Graduate at Graduation,“ students who are:
  • Socially skilled and mature
  • Compassionate
  • Socially just and responsible
  • Well-rounded and holistic
  • Intellectually competent
Jones is recognized in US News and World Report as one of ”America’s Best High Schools,“ ranking in the top 5 in the State of Illinois and the top 100 nationally. We are very proud of our students’ many achievements and the dedicated professional staff that works tirelessly to help our students be the best they can be.
Please explore our website to learn more about our school and what it has to offer all members of our school community. My door is always open, and I welcome hearing from you at any time.
P. Joseph Powers, Ph.D.
