Welcome New Students and Parents!

Friends of Jones would like to welcome the students and parents of the incoming freshman class — the Class of 2019 — and all transfer students!

Friends of Jones wants to make sure you get all the Jones College Prep information and news, so here is a crash course in how to get started…

1.  Sign up for the Email Newsletter

The newsletter, published bi-weekly by our FOJ Commuications Chair, lets you know the latest news in the school. You can sign up for the newsletter by selecting this link:  Email Newsletter Sign up

2.  Register Online 

In addition to sending email newsletters, Friends of Jones maintains a database of addresses, emails, and phone numbers.  These are used by BOTH the Friends of Jones organization and the school, so please take the time to add your information to this list. Registration Form – Select this link

A couple notes:

  1. This database is organized by student/graduating class.  You will need to register for EACH of your students to stay in the database.
  2. If you change addresses/phone numbers/email addresses, please sign up again.  We will automatically update the information by selecting the most recent entry.  THIS DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY CHANGE INFORMATION AT THE SCHOOL, HOWEVER — PLEASE ALSO CONTACT THE SCHOOL WITH CHANGES.

These are the 2 most important steps in getting started at Jones College Prep.


Here are some additional ways you can stay in touch:


like friends of jones on facebook  “LIKE” us on Facebook – Friends of Jones has its own Facebook Page – add us!

  Attend a Friends of Jones Meeting – These are posted on the school calendar.  Meetings are open to the public, and we encourage you to visit!

We are now soliciting volunteers for next year’s board — in addition to the board roles you see listed on this website, we also need a liaison (or 2!) for the Class of 19.  The board term runs from July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016.

We also need many committee roles filled! If you’re interested in finding out more about these opportunities, contact Janet Roderick, incoming board chair.
