This award, based on the EPIC value-added model analysis conducted by its data partner Mathematica Policy Research put Codman in the elite company of only fourteen schools nationwide. One of those schools was MATCH Charter Public High School, where T4A’s model was first implemented. Tutors for All’s approach to academic support – recruiting and training hundreds of community-service college students to work one-on-one with entire cohorts of students in public Boston schools – has driven school improvement in ten different schools since its first program in 2005, including past EPIC winners City on a Hill, Prospect Hill, and Smith Leadership Academy.
