Accelerate Institute

Creating School Leaders

Closing the achievement gap by creating high impact school leaders that accelerate student achievement.

Accelerate Institute focuses on the most important issue impacting the achievement gap in this country: the recruitment and development of transformational school leaders focused on accelerating student achievement. For over 20 years, Accelerate Institute has earned a successful track record of closing the achievement gap. Its four innovative programs converge together with the singular focus of accelerating student achievement. The Ryan Fellowship identifies and selects the most highly qualified educators, deeply committed to closing the achievement gap and prepares them to become transformational leaders in urban charter schools through a yearlong fellowship; the Partner Principal Program trains sitting principals alongside Ryan Fellows; The Ryan Award is a national award recognizing principals who have demonstrated accelerated results in underserved schools; and the Alain Locke Charter School is a pre-k through eighth grade school that holds the record for #1 test score gains in the history of the Illinois ISAT test and was recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as 1 of 7 schools nationally best “Closing the Achievement Gap”.
