Connecticut Schools

We began with a single school. When Amistad Academy Middle opened its doors in New Haven in 1999, it proved what’s possible when potential meets opportunity. From there, we grew to 10 outstanding schools in New Haven, Bridgeport and Hartford. At all of our schools, our students are outscoring local districts, and they are often performing better than their peers across the state and in wealthy communities.
