Liza Jackson Preparatory School

A caring community of learners dedicated to making the world a better place through academic preparation, good manners, common sense, and 100% effort.


On behalf of Liza Jackson Preparatory School and our parent organization, Parents and Teachers Helping Students (PATHS), we are pleased to welcome you!  Each year, PATHS raises, on average, over $45,000 for LJPS, which goes towards new programs, technology, teacher/staff support, clubs, sports and much more. We look forward to a great year filled with amazing events, activities and most importantly, supporting our kids and teachers.   At LJPS, we strive for strong partnerships between the school, parents, and our community.  As a member of PATHS, you can volunteer or participate as much as you like by putting your skills, hobbies, and strengths to work, helping make Liza the best school in Okaloosa County.    
If you’re interested in learning more about PATHS and volunteering, send an email to and we will add you to our contact list.  We’ll email about upcoming events and when volunteers are needed.
