It’s clear when you walk in the door: the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School isn’t like other schools.
Some of the differences are obvious, like the school uniforms. Others are subtler, like the way each classroom is named for a prestigious college. It all serves a single purpose: to help each of our students gain admittance into a highly selective college or university.
The Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School approach to education is best summed up by three bold words: College or Die. Other schools might not feel comfortable using such strong language. But again, Tindley isn’t like other schools.
In January 2013, Tindley will launch Coaches for College—a mentoring program designed to teach character development and behavioral expectations to middle school students as they prepare for high school, college, and ultimately, the professional world. The success of the program will depend on the participation of caring adult volunteers. Could one of them be you?
