Accelerate launched in the context of the national achievement gaps that have worsened significantly since the pandemic.
We believe the country has a moral obligation to address these gaps.
Tools and models exist — and more can be developed — to provide all students with individualized instruction that can change the trajectory of their lives.Subscribe
Accelerate actively builds the country’s knowledge of tools and practices that significantly advance student learning.
We do this by bridging the gaps between research, communities, and systems to ensure the rapid and widespread adoption of proven strategies.Subscribe
What We Do
Call to Effective Action
Launched in 2022, Accelerate’s Call to Effective Action (CEA) supports models of tutoring and individualized instruction that demonstrate the potential to deliver cost-effective services on a large scale to improve outcomes for students, particularly those in historically underserved communities.
Since 2022, we have invested over $16M in innovative efforts to improve student outcomes by meeting students where they are.
Our grantees are developing programs to individualize instruction, pairing students with tutors in-person and virtually, and tackling the real challenges of implementation at scale.
This year, our grantees will serve over 300,000 students across the country, from California to Kentucky to New York.
“Accelerate is a rallying cry to schools, districts, states, and others.
We must seize this moment to use federal relief funds to help students, including those most impacted by the pandemic, to close gaps in opportunity and achievement that grew even wider over the last two years.”
U.S. Secretary of Education
