Each year, we hold a live public lottery for enrollment. This year, families can watch the lottery virtually. Achievement First’s Bridgeport Lottery for the 2022-2023 school year will be held virtually on April 13, 2022 at 6 PM. Please find the link to the lottery Zoom here:  If you submitted an application, you will receive an email/text with the Zoom information prior to the lottery.  Lottery attendance has no bearing on lottery placement.  Once the lottery runs you will receive your lottery or waitlist placement by email/text. Check SchoolMint for your application status and lottery results.
