Bezos Academy to open a school in Lakeland, FL!
We’re thrilled to announce the home of our next Bezos Academy preschool in Lakeland, Florida. Our new school will be located at Oscar J. Pope Elementary School. We’ll welcome our future students after we renovate the space to make it just right for our incoming three- and four-year-olds. We can’t wait to meet them!
Thank you to our partners at Polk County Public Schools for sharing our belief that all children deserve the great start that an excellent preschool provides. Our goal is to nurture the potential in every child to become a creative leader, original thinker, and lifelong learner by increasing access to early childhood education in under-resourced communities.
Once we have a target opening date, we’ll update this page with that information and details about the application process. Eligible students will be selected via a lottery process. Please check back for updates.
