Success for All Foundation (SFAF)

The Success for All Foundation (SFAF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development, evaluation, and dissemination of research-proven reform models for preschool, elementary, and middle schools, especially those serving many children considered at risk. It began in 1987 at Johns Hopkins University and still retains strong links to the School of Education. Robert Slavin, director of CRRE, and Nancy Madden, a professor at the School of Education, are co-founders of the organization.

SFAF is serving about 1,000 schools in forty-six states. SFAF offers preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school programs to help students achieve grade-level performance across the curriculum and reach their full potential. The flagship model is Success for All for elementary schools, which in 2010 was awarded a federal grant to scale up to 1,100 additional schools.

The goal of the Success for All Foundation is to transform schools by creating and disseminating programs that are both based on research and have been rigorously evaluated. In addition to its direct services to schools, SFAF promotes broader policies favoring school reform through adoption and effective implementation of proven programs.
