The Tindley Model

The Tindley Model Image
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. No class will be larger than 22; no school will be larger than 300-500 students

Message to Families

Tiger Nation,
 
Welcome Back to the 2022-2023 school year! It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where all staff members strive to build positive relationships in order to support our scholar's academic and social-emotional growth.
 
Our hope is that all children will love school in a learning environment that is positive, safe, warm, and caring, as well as a fun place to learn and grow. We also welcome several new staff members to our CATAS family this school year.
 
Scholar success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community and this is extremely important now more than ever. It truly does take a village and at CATAS, we value teamwork and collaboration. Education is a joint venture and our staff greatly appreciates the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals.
 
On behalf of our CATAS school, we want to welcome you to our Tindley Family and thank you for being part of our community where we build on traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in exciting and innovative ways. I wish you all an excellent school year!
