Achievement First Providence Mayoral Academy Elementary opened with kindergarten and first grade, and will add an additional grade in each years until it is a fully enrolled K-4 elementary school. All students are admitted through a blind lottery that includes preferences for low-income families. We serve all students, regardless of special needs, language or citizenship. There are no admission requirements or interviews, and there are no admission or tuition fees.
Achievement First’s inaugural Rhode Island school is located in Providence, but the school also serves the communities of Cranston, Warwick and North Providence. Any and all students from those communities are eligible for our lottery.
