He is definitely a JPAS kid! I know the pandemic has been so hard for you all, but it’s been so great for him. He’s seriously having the BEST summer.

Thank you for providing a place for Addie to grow and SHINE.  In the weeks leading up to her Bat Mitzvah, I wasn’t sure how she would do on the bimah. I was blown away at her first rehearsal! Her voice was clear, strong and she and owning the room. This was a direct result of all her time with StarQuest/JPAS.

Alyssa has been enjoying middle school and has gotten involved with student council and the school’s musical. Alyssa displays so much confidence when speaking, presenting, making new friends and especially recently when she auditioned for her school’s musical. She attributes her confidence to her experiences in Camp Star Quest and JPAS. She is even writing a memoir about Camp Star Quest for her English class.
