Tindley Accelerated Schools, in cooperation with parents and the broader community, will empower students – regardless of their past academic performance – to become successful learners who graduate with the capacity for rigorous college opportunities. Tindley will provide a powerful learning experience that intellectually engages, inspires, and spurs academic achievement through a challenging and interactive college-preparatory curriculum.
Back in 2004, the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School launched to provide a top-quality, accelerated academic experience to urban youth in a college-preparatory environment. Over time, the demand for the Tindley experience became so overwhelming that we opened five additional schools to serve more kids, including elementary school and kindergarten students.
- Accelerated Learning: Each student is expected to work at least one grade level ahead with the goal of selective college admission upon high school graduation.
- Extended Hours: Tindley Accelerated Schools schools commit to longer school days, weeks, and years for those needing further academic assistance.
- Quality Instruction: Tindley Accelerated Schools teachers are expected to serve students in an engaging, rigorous classroom setting.
- Small Size: Tindley Accelerated Schools is committed to a personalized academic setting for all students. No class will be larger than 22; no school will be larger than 300-500 students
