WHO WE ARE

Achievement Network (ANet) is an education nonprofit that helps schools boost student learning with great teaching—teaching that's grounded in standards, informed by data, and built on the successful practices of educators around the country.

ANet was founded on the premise that every child in America deserves an excellent education and the opportunities it provides. We choose to work in traditionally underserved communities because we want to help address the persistent inequity of opportunity in our country.

We now serve over 700 schools educating over 230,000 students in our Colorado, District of Columbia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Tennessee networks. Our support has consistently helped our partner schools—whether district or charter—achieve breakthrough results for their students.

ANet has received multiple awards and recognition, including a prestigious Investing In Innovation (I3) grant from the federal government, New Schools Venture Fund's “Organization of the Year” in 2011 and The New Profit Time's “Best Nonprofits to Work For” in 2015.
