College or Die The Motto

The mission of Tindley is aimed at developing “scholars,” not simply “students.” That’s why the phrase College or Die is emblazoned in giant letters in the hallway of the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School. While this statement was never meant to be interpreted literally, for most of our scholars, many of whom will be first-generation collegians, it conveys a strong message.
