Accelerate Great Schools believes that every student is capable of greatness and deserves the chance to attain it.
There has been progress in Cincinnati, and we need to leverage our successes. We also need to move faster. We need more great schools. We need more great principals and great teachers. We need to accelerate. Providing that fuel is what Accelerate Great Schools is all about.
Who we areFounded in 2015, Accelerate Great Schools is a nonprofit dedicated to increasing access to an excellent education for all K-12 students in Cincinnati.
What we doAccelerate Great Schools will identify opportunities to invest in high-performing schools by partnering with Cincinnati Public Schools, successful charter operators and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati to transform existing schools and launch new, high-performing schools – provided these schools are rooted in autonomy, accountability, sustainability, openness and results. We will also invest in programs that recruit, train and support teachers and principals.
