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.
While each Tindley school has its own distinct character, there are consistent qualities within every school: 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. We strive to maintain small class sizes for more engaged interaction; no school will be larger than 300-500 students
Greetings from the principal’s office! I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year, and to the Tindley Accelerated Schools community. I am thrilled to be a part of this community, and celebrate our numerous successes! During the past two years, we have experienced considerable academic achievement. Our state assessment results remain considerably higher than the state averages, and we had 100% of our 3rd graders pass the IREAD 3 Assessment.
As your principal, it is my goal and purpose to help provide an excellent educational experience for ALL our scholars. The Tindley team is dedicated to ensuring our students receive the best support to grow academically.
I look forward to working with the amazing students, families and faculty at Tindley Genesis Academy.
