Relay partner school

Relay is proud to collaborate with many outstanding peer institutions of higher education, educational nonprofits, public school districts, and public charter networks across the U.S.

A Shared Commitment

With impressive records of developing effective teachers, creating exemplary schools, and making investments in local communities, our partners set a high bar for excellence and inform our approach to developing teachers and school leaders. We are also grateful for the ongoing support we receive from our donors, many of whom have supported Relay from the very beginning.

Relay grew out of the shared work of three of the nation’s largest and most successful charter school networks: Uncommon Schools, KIPP, and Achievement First. Over 20 years, these organizations have shaped a new generation of 230 urban public schools that serve more than 80,000 students across the country.
