About Us

The Accelerated Schools were founded on the belief that every child be treated as gifted, with an emphasis on high expectations for student achievement, a supportive learning environment, and extensive parent involvement. At The Accelerated Schools, all incoming students are accepted by lottery, regardless of academic achievement elsewhere.

The Accelerated Schools will graduate students who are prepared to succeed at the university of his/her choice; who will enter the workplace as informed and productive employees, entrepreneurs, and community leaders; and who will act as responsible citizens.

Today, using innovative strategies to foster academic achievement, The Accelerated Schools continue to create a place for education that allows children to learn and succeed, while continuing to transform the South Central Los Angeles community.
