Welcome to AJA

On behalf of Anchorage Junior Academy I welcome you.

AJA is a wonderful school family to become a part of. I invite you to give us a call and come find out if we are the right fit for your child. If you're looking for a place where your child will not only receive an academically excellent education, but can also learn how to lead a happy, healthy life then AJA may be the perfect fit!      

I invite you to explore our website and find out more about the great programs we offer. We understand that choosing a school for your child is a big decision. We have many wonderful schools in our community.  But, based on your child’s needs and your priorities, some may match better than others. Our principal specializes in helping parents decide if AJA is a good fit for the goals they've set for their child. We invite you to schedule an educational success consult to learn all you need to know in order to make the best choice for your child. We look forward to meeting you!
