Advisory Services

We believe that our successful approach to transforming student outcomes in low-performing schools can be implemented to address educational challenges in any community.

We partner with districts and schools to offer training, support, and tools to improve school culture, student academic performance, and teacher professional development.

Through identifying root causes, together we create an action plan that sets you on a path to educational excellence to make an impact on students, and communities, that you serve.

Why Us?

Not only do we manage 31 Chicago Public Schools on the city’s west and south sides serving 17,000 students (whom 93% qualify for free or reduced price lunch), but we also created and manage the first and most prolific teacher residency program in the nation.

Plus, we’re an ESSA endorsed High Quality Vendor in Illinois, Louisiana, and Nevada.
