Jubilee School Amman – Furthering Educational Opportunities for Underprivileged Gifted Students
The Barrington Education Initiative is proud to be associated with the Jubilee Institute of Jordan, which encompasses the Jubilee School and the Center for Excellence in Education, and is one of the main projects operating under the Education and Leadership domain of the King Hussein Foundation.
The Jubilee School is Jordan’s first co-educational secondary school for gifted students from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, with special emphasis on students from disadvantaged areas. The School promotes a unique curriculum grounded in democratic values, tolerance and an extensive community service program.
The Student Scholarship Fund provides educational opportunities for disadvantaged gifted students by offering them the opportunity to attend the Jubilee School. Scholarships are awarded to students whose parents are unable to cover the costs, and allow for the enrollment of students of diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, with special emphasis on students from disadvantaged areas.
Our participation in the scholarship fund provides for underprivileged students from the more remote governorates with scholarships to attend the Jubilee School for four years. The scholarships cover tuition fees, textbooks and stationary, transportation, school uniforms and a wide-range of campus activities.
These scholarships provide the opportunity for gifted and promising students from the various regions of the country to attend the School and benefit from its educational program, regardless of their family’s financial capabilities. It is the aim of the School that scholarship students give back in deeds to their communities, countries and the world what they receive in learning.
We identify completely with King Hussein’s belief that education provides a viable pathway out of poverty and towards peace, based on which the goal of the Jubilee Institute is to promote academic excellence and provide an equitable opportunity for outstanding students to reach their highest potential.
