Achievement Network (ANet) is an entrepreneurial education nonprofit that helps schools boost student learning with great teaching—teaching that’s grounded in standards, informed by data, and built on the successful practices of educators around the country.
We believe that every child in America deserves an excellent education and the opportunities it provides. We choose to work in traditionally underserved communities because our mission is to help address the persistent inequity of opportunity in our country.
Founded in Boston in 2005, ANet has grown more than 60% per year over the last five years. We now serve over 500 schools educating 150,000 students in Massachusetts, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, and the District of Columbia. Our support has consistently helped our partner schools—whether district or charter, high capacity or low capacity—achieve breakthrough results for their students.
ANet has received multiple awards and recognition, including a prestigious Investing In Innovation (I3) grant from the federal government and New Schools Venture Fund’s “Organization of the Year” in 2011, and selection as one of the best places to work by The NonProfit Times in 2015.
Over the next five years, we will build on our successes. By 2020, we expect to help our partner schools deliver breakthrough results to over 250,000 students.
