The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 requires all School Food Authorities (SFAs) to inform families about the availability and location of free meals for students over the summer months through the Summer Food Service Program. The Juniata Valley School District does not participate in the Summer Meals Program, but is still required to provide this notice.

Schools or families can use any of the following methods to locate sites that serve free meals to children during the summer:

Welcome to the new Juniata Valley School District website!

JVSD “Prepares students for life.”

We do this by ensuring that each of our students receives individualized instruction and guidance to assist them in planning life’s journey.  In 2014, more than 80% of our graduates enrolled in 2 or 4 year colleges, trade schools, and universities.  Our graduation rate has historically been nearly 100%, making JVSD one the highest performing schools in the state in this critical category.

We currently offer 9 courses for dual enrollment credits through partnerships with Penn Highlands Community College and Mount Aloysius College.  In the past 3 years JVSD has invested more than $250,000 in safety and security upgrades to our campus and more than $200,000 in new curriculum materials for Math and English Language Arts for students.

Our incredibly supportive community is the reason that JVSD is a great place for students to go to school and a great place for our faculty, staff, and administration to come to work.

We have “Hornet Pride,” and we demonstrate this every day!  If you have any questions about the Juniata Valley School District or any of the programs that we offer, please feel free to call me at (814) 669 – 9150, or email me at dchristopher@jvsd.org.

Go Hornets!
