Company Overview top

EdPower is a 501c3 organization that provides educational services, including charter school management, turnaround school services, education consulting, and more.

EdPower launched in 2002 as the Charter for Accelerated Learning, Inc. In 2004, we launched Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School in one of Indianapolis’ most impoverished neighborhoods. In six short years, the Tindley School established itself as a model for urban schooling in Indiana, winning the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award in 2010.

Now, EdPower is focused on giving students throughout urban Indianapolis access to opportunities for strong educations. That’s why in 2010 the Charter for Accelerated Learning became EdPower, dedicated to expanding quality college-preparatory educational services for young people and helping Indianapolis schools excel – so their students can do likewise.

Since 2004, the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School has provided a top-quality academic experience in a college-preparatory environment. Today, the demand for spaces at the Tindley School has become so overwhelming that we’re working to expand our reach in the community.

In the fall of 2012, EdPower will launch Tindley Preparatory Academy, its second accelerated school in Indianapolis. By the fall of 2015, EdPower will manage a network of five accelerated charter schools. And by the fall of 2020, EdPower will be a vibrant network of 10 schools fulfilling the promise of a college education for all students.

While each charter will have its own distinct character, there are consistent qualities that will be expected of every school:


  • Accelerated Learning: Each student is expected to work at least one grade level ahead with the goal of selective college admission upon high school graduation.
  • Extended Hours: EdPower schools commit to longer school days, weeks, and years for its neediest students.
  • Quality Instruction: EdPower teachers are expected to serve students in an engaging, rigorous classroom setting.
  • Small Size: EdPower is committed to a personalized academic setting for all students. No class will be larger than 22; no school will be larger than 300-500 students.

EdPower is now seeking dynamic and energetic professionals in both instructional and administrative positions.
