Meet the Founder
Jacqueline Sanin is the President and Founder of Jump! Immersion School.
For Jackie, as she is commonly known, creating Jump! grew from a desire to have her children embrace their language and heritage.
Prior to becoming a mom, Jackie, a graduate of Kean University, worked at Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center where she conducted training courses for the Human Resources Department. Her specialty was to find the areas where employees needed training to better their skills at work and develop classes in areas of customer service, employee relations, team building and motivational classes. Following the birth of her daughter, Jackie decided to use her real life teaching experience and her love of language and culture to create Jump! Immersion School.
The prestigious school, Wardlaw-Hartridge in Edison, NJ, worked with Jackie to run a pilot program on its premises, offering the course for free for six months as an After-School Program. With 3 classes and eight students in each, the pilot was deemed a success, and the parents encouraged her to open her own business. Growth and expansion to other locations soon followed.
For the Founder, Jump! has become more than a school, it has become a launch pad for putting children on an upper academic trajectory to reach their full potential. Harkening back to her younger days in New York City, diversity and cultural awareness surrounded her. The Jump! vision and mission is:
“A world where all children have the ability to globally communicate, relate and partner with each other to provide the necessary leadership to address, resolve and/or prevent global issues”
“To ensure children are linguistically, culturally and academically prepared to succeed in our global environment because together we are much stronger than apart.”
Jackie's goal is to bring some of her New York City childhood experiences to Jump! Immersion School, where children will embrace this philosophy.
