About Us

The Southwest Center for Accelerated Schools works with PK-12 schools and districts to implement the research-proven Accelerated Schools Project model, the most cost-effective and successful transformation and reform model available to schools.

We understand underperforming schools and the challenges they face. We help schools build on the strengths and talents of their stakeholders to identify and correct these challenges. We engage and empower administrators, staff, teachers, parents, students, and other school community members to collaborate on developing the best school possible for their learning community. We create customized solutions—with long-range results—that make the best use of time, resources, and energy.

The Southwest Center for Accelerated Schools (SWCAS) Team brings decades of top level experience in the areas of education, leadership, climate and culture and complex school and district reform. The critical philosophy of Accelerated Schools is to accelerate rather than remediate. This is what the SWCAS team does best. The SWCAS works collaboratively with each campus to address their unique challenges to academic success by facilitating a comprehensive process to success.

All Accelerated Schools field trainers work directly with the campus administration and leadership team, having extensive educational backgrounds as administrators, associate superintendents and superintendents.
