Community Partnerships in Bridgeport

Great Oaks — Bridgeport is deeply invested in Bridgeport, in our students, our teachers, and the community.   We are proud to be the anchor investor in the Cherry Street Lofts in West Bridgeport. This public-private partnership is already underway to transform a vacant factory complex alongside Interstate 95 into a thriving community.  The development will have a 65,000 sf school facility and 311 units of mixed income housing geared toward the Bridgeport workforce and Great Oaks Fellows.  Great Oaks is working alongside local developer Corvus Capital, state and local government, and many other partners to see this project through to fruition.

Great Oaks — Bridgeport will find a home in the Cherry Street Lofts in West Bridgeport beginning in 2018. The development will have a 65,000 sf school facility and 311 units of mixed income housing geared toward the Bridgeport workforce and Great Oaks Fellows.


AmeriCorps awarded our network a grant of over $10,000,000 this year, allowing us to deploy over 270 recent college graduates to serve our students as fellows. Many of these individuals will remain in the cities where they work after their year of service, positively impacting our schools and communities for years to come.
