The Academy for Urban School Leadership (AUSL) is an equity-focused education non-profit.

Through our Chicago Teacher Residency, and Advisory Services team, we leverage two decades of success to improve the quality of education in under invested communities.

Our results

AUSL infused $100 million in teacher training and school enhancements (capital improvements, coaching, principal development, Pre-K, and student supports) and saw real increases in the percentage of 8th-grade students at or above grade level in reading and math in its network schools.
