Search for the Chief Executive Officer

The Accelerated Schools

Los Angeles, California


The Accelerated Schools (TAS), a leading charter school cluster in South Los Angeles that serves students in grades TK-12, seeks a strategic, tested, and inspirational leader to serve as its next Chief Executive Officer (CEO). In partnership with a dedicated board of trustees, a highly effective leadership team, and a deeply talented staff, the CEO will build upon TAS’ core commitments to academic excellence and strong community engagement to deliver the highest quality educational experience and outcomes for TAS students.


Founded in 1994, as one of the first charter schools in California, TAS was guided then, and the charter cluster still is today, by the founding belief that all students can excel when nurtured in an environment that combines high expectations and active involvement from parents and the community. Through an innovative, rigorous curriculum coupled with intentional guidance and instruction, TAS strives to graduate students who are lifelong learners and engaged citizens, well-prepared to succeed in college and beyond. The next CEO will inherit a dynamic community of three schools located on the same street, with state-of-the-art, modern campuses, and separate charters — brought to life by 1,770 students and 231 staff, with a positive reputation, top-notch facilities, and an exceptionally strong financial position—poised for continued success.


In its next CEO, TAS seeks a highly skilled educational leader who will partner with stakeholders across the organization to develop a galvanizing and inclusive strategic vision for the schools’ next chapter. The CEO will model transparent and collaborative leadership, will cultivate a strong sense of community and belonging across the organization, and will set a high bar and ambitious goals for TAS’ future—all in service of providing the very best academic experience for the schools’ students. The CEO will be an effective manager of people and processes; will work towards consensus and act decisively when needed; will celebrate the diversity of TAS’ community and foster a culture in which every community member feels valued, seen, and heard; and will represent TAS effectively, and with enthusiasm, with current and prospective families, community leaders, and partners across Los Angeles.
