Dr Jeremiah Newell Leads the State’s First Public Charter School
Posted On March 30, 2020
Dr Jeremiah Newell had many job offers after completing his Harvard Fellowship, but he returned to Mobile to work in and on the education system that had prepared him for his life’s work. Today he runs ACCEL Day and Evening Academy, the state’s first public charter school, where these non-traditional students get the extraordinary attention of a select faculty. In August 2020, the school will be expanded from grades 9 – 12 to grades 6 – 12, reflecting the demand and growth of an idea that’s working.
