The Learning Accelerator (TLA) is building a world in which each student receives the effective, engaging, and equitable education they need to reach their full and unique potential.

As a national nonprofit, TLA is accelerating individual, organization, and sector learning to transform K-12 education. Now in our 10th year of operation, we’re working alongside educators across the nation to advance a research-informed vision for equitable teaching and learning that is personalized, mastery-based, and comprehensively developing. By actively bridging gaps in understanding and access to necessary resources, tools, and networks and through catalyzing greater collective action and change, we’re making the ‘potential’ possible for every learner.
