The announcement will be made as part of their groundbreaking A’s for J’s program. The participating schools are: West Philadelphia High School; Imhotep Institute Charter High School; and Kensington High School for Creative and Performing Arts. The pilot program which kicked off in January, will reward high achievers in Math, Science, and English. Students received $25 VILLA credits toward Jordan Brand products for each “A’ they received this past school year.
In a climate where cuts to school funding are on the rise and grades are on the decline – A’s for J’s is a practical, solution-oriented response to a growing epidemic. Accompanying the announcement are plans to expand A’s for J’s into cities around the country with the next scheduled city to be Chicago.
