Invest in one—educate many
Your investment creates a multiplier effect by supporting a Ryan Fellow principal who influences dozens of teachers—who, in turn, impact hundreds of students.
The Ryan Fellowship
Developing transformational school principals
The country’s foremost principal fellowship prepares aspiring school leaders through a rigorous three-year program; it directly attacks the issue of underperforming urban schools by addressing why those schools fail: a lack of qualified leadership.
Accelerating the growth of current school principals
Designed specifically for current principals to continue their full-time work in urban schools while getting customized advisory support to accelerate success. Includes on-the-job support.
Alain Locke Charter School
One of the nation’s top-performing K-8 Charter Schools
This exceptional school is Accelerate Institute’s proof point for urban schools. It exemplifies excellence in academics, the arts, personal, and social development, and producing students who are globally competitive.
The Ryan Award
Recognizing exceptional leadership in education
The Ryan Award recognizes the important and challenging work of school leaders across America—those who give students a chance by believing in them and hold student success as the true measure of their own professional success.
Whether you’re a principal looking to explore the ways other principals have closed the achievement gap, or a supporter who wants to see how the Accelerate Framework works, it’s all in here.
