Our School

Hope Rising

Welcome from the Founders

Welcome to Adam J. Lewis Academy. Founded in 2013, AJLA started as a nonprofit preschool located in the West End of Bridgeport, CT.

Children who receive a high-quality preschool experience gain a strong foundation for success both in school and in life. We understand the importance of nurturing curious young minds, and have created a program that allows children to explore, discover, and develop to their full potential.

AJLA students learn and grow with highly skilled, caring teachers. For the 2021-2022 school year, we will have students in grades PreK, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades with plans to add an additional class each year through 8th grade. Our program honors and supports every child as an individual, and we place special emphasis on social-emotional and character development. By providing financial assistance to all families with demonstrated need, we ensure that no child is denied admission due to cost.

We encourage you to visit the Academy and discover for yourself what make us a unique and special program.
