Your financial support will help the IRT to increase the diversity of teachers, school counselors and administrators, and professors – all vital role models – to better reflect the diversity of today’s students and feed the pipeline of IRT alumni, who commit to long and meaningful careers in education.

“For our nation to emerge from the well-documented educational crisis, we desperately need the leadership of the diverse, passionate, and thoughtful educators who have been touched by the IRT experience.”

Dr. Stephen Zrike, IRT ’01 | Receiver of the Holyoke Public School, Holyoke, MA.

Now, more than ever, your support is vital in fulfilling IRT’s Strategic Vision – to sponsor as many talented students to pursue postsecondary education; expand the diversity of our teaching workforce; and launch several exciting initiatives to support our alumni leading successful careers in education. Every gift matters, regardless of size!

“The outreach programs at Phillips Academy are among the clearest expressions of our belief in non sibi – not for self. Just as important, these programs also create a bridge between our students and faculty and a wider world, from which we all learn essential lessons. We are blessed by the partnerships that the IRT represents.”

John Palfrey | Head of School, Phillips Academy
