After 24 years in the K-12 education space, Achieve has shut its doors. Read the statement from Michael Cohen, President of Achieve here.
Our website www.achieve.org will remain available through December 31, 2020.
Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
At Achieve, we are committed to making sure every student graduates from high school ready to succeed in the college or career of their choice.
Created in 1996 by a bipartisan group of governors and business leaders, Achieve is a nonprofit education organization that has spent two decades leading the effort to help states make college and career readiness a priority for all students.
Our diverse team of educators, researchers, advocates, and other experts represents decades of experience at the local, state, and national levels. For the past 20 years, we have delivered expertise and developed solutions for education leaders from across and within states as they tackle common challenges.
o We provide technical assistance on the design, development, adoption, implementation, and advocacy of states’ and districts’ college- and career-ready policies.
o We convene states, experts, and partners to develop solutions to their shared college- and career-ready policy and implementation challenges.
o We conduct research to advance the work of states and the broader education community. This includes studies of high school graduation requirements, implementation strategies for state academic standards, state accountability models, measures of instructional material quality, and analyses of expectations from countries around the world.
o We develop advocacy resources that address common issues around college, and career readiness. These help national, state, and community-based advocates develop, launch, and refine their own college- and career-ready communications and outreach plans.
