Through a program focused on the whole child, we help empower students and graduates to change the trajectory of their lives, setting their sights on success in high school, college, and serving their communities.

School Culture

AJC is a community of students, teachers, families, volunteers, alumni, and partners that is defined by mutual love and respect. Our aim is for this ‘community of affection’ to be tangible to all who come through our doors.

Teachers - Students - Parents - Graduates - Volunteers

The AJC experience is made possible by an exemplary faculty, staff, and community of volunteers who are committed to advancing the School’s mission and serving as strong role models for students. Learn how you can get involved and join our family!
