The Partnership for Environmental Education, Inc. is a Florida not-for-profit organization (began January 1995), that was formed by a diverse group of community leaders, educators and business people for the purpose of encouraging, promoting and supporting environmental education, stewardship, and careers. The Partnership brings together students, scientists, educators, businesses and governmental agencies to promote a sustainable environmental legacy for our region.


Planning for the Jupiter High School Environmental Research and Field Studies Academy (JERFSA) began during the 1992-93 school year. The recommendation to approve the creation of the Academy was submitted in Palm Beach County School Board Report 6G November 4, 1992. JERFSA was started in August 1993 with 75 students, two teachers and funding from the School Board and generous other donations. The first class of 35 students graduated in 1997. Since then the number of students each year has slowly increased and several other staff positions have opened.
