Accelerate Institute is dedicated to ensuring all children have the opportunity to achieve to their fullest potential. We identify high-performing, results-focused talent with a passion for closing the achievement gap in urban education. We develop this talent by drawing on the leadership model used to achieve success at our nationally-recognized charter school, Alain Locke Charter School.
The Accelerator Grant, the newest program of Accelerate Institute, awards grants to charter schools that are underperforming, but willing to make the necessary changes to improve school outcomes. The Ryan Fellowship, a program of Accelerate Institute, identifies and selects the most highly qualified educators, deeply committed to closing the achievement gap. Ryan Fellows are prepared through a yearlong fellowship to become transformational leaders for urban schools nationwide.Accelerate Institute is located in Chicago, Illinois.
