Accelerate Great Schools announces $1.43 million in grants to Cincinnati public and Catholic schools

Accelerate Great Schools recently announced it will invest $1.43 million in grants to help support Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Accelerate Great Schools was launched in 2015 with the idea that students in every Cincinnati neighborhood should have access to a great school. Funding for the program, which comes from private donations, will help students find a higher level of success in school.  

Accelerate Great Schools is splitting its investment into two grants: $128,000 will help CPS and its work with TNTP (formerly The New Teacher Project) to develop a talent pipeline of school principals, assistant principals and teachers; $1.3 million will help Seton Education Partners introduce a blended learning model at two local Archdiocese of Cincinnati grade schools.

“We believe every student in every neighborhood deserves a chance to attend a great school,” Accelerate Great Schools CEO Patrick Herrel says. “Our only objective is student success.These initial investments are a bold first step to ensure more students have access to quality education here in Cincinnati. We’re thrilled to partner with Cincinnati Public Schools and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati to build upon their foundation of success.”
