Meet our “Team & Family”: Adrian Johnson

Category: News, Home

For as long as he can remember, Adrian has been fascinated with computers. As a child growing up in Barbados and then in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn, he always looked for opportunities to play with and fix computers. This passion led him to further his studies in computer programming in college, and to take an IT job serving the medical industry before returning to graduate school. When he finished his advanced degree, he joined the IT team at Achievement First.

Now, he is helping a new generation of students develop their passions for technology and learning.

“I love that we’re pushing students from a young age to know they will go to college,” Adrian said. “I have friends who didn’t make it through the education system with the same determination that I had, and I really believe that if everyone receives a great education, you can do so much with your life.”
