We work for change that changes everything.
We are a growing network of 37 non-profit, high-performing K-12 public charter schools in Connecticut, New York, and Rhode Island. But we’re more than that. We’re changemakers.
In order to make long-lasting and transformative change, we believe in focusing on what we know to work: serving all students, growing in our communities, sharing and learning from others, and committing to innovation. It makes us who we are. And who are we?
We are high performing.
We have some of the best schools in the country. Our students are outperforming kids across our cities and states. And they’re going on to college to become whatever they dream of.
We care about people.
We can help you become who you’re meant to be, whether you’re 8 or 38. Because at Achievement First, we know that taking care of kids means taking care of teachers, too.
We are innovating & growing.
We never stop learning and evolving. It’s a part of everything we do, from our bold new programs to the way our network of schools continues to grow in the communities we serve.
