Transform Your School's Future

With the Education Accelerator, we believe in supporting schools to develop innovative cultures capable of elevating their future, empowering their teachers and maximizing student engagement. We believe in a leadership program that not only supports principals, but also the next generation of leaders in every building. We believe in a cross-pollination strategy that looks beyond education for the support of business and industry leaders as panel members, mentors and scholarship providers for schools involved. Do you believe?

Why the Education Accelerator?

When we built the Education Accelerator, our goal was to bring an innovation program to school leaders that not only met their demands (bureaucratic requirements, budget, time, resources expended, etc…) but also focused on putting leaders in challenging situations that would actually help them, and their school, grow. In other words, our goal was to build a launchpad that gave school leaders full autonomy over the trajectory of their school’s future, and the innovation they enlisted as a means to that growth. Why the Education Accelerator? Because it’s a program that works with leaders in a school, beyond just the principal, to tackle school culture, and enlist innovation as a means to actual growth.

Embrace failure as a means to progress, and take the risks that inevitably result in failure because creative ideation is impossible without failure. Empower those with strange and unexpected ideas to try them in service of discovery.
