Although the Academy for Teaching and Learning Leadership was relatively new, its radical innovation caught the attention of the President George W. Bush Institute’s Alliance for Reform in Educational Leadership (AREL) in Dallas, Texas. The Academy for Teaching and Learning Leadership was one of very few operational leadership programs accepted into AREL's Accelerating Programs category in 2011.

The KIPP Foundation’s Leadership Design Fellowship (KDLF) also invited the Academy for Teaching and Learning Leadership to join the fellowship, which consists of top-tier school leadership programs from across the United States. Both AREL and KDLF are focused on identifying and replicating top-quality, scalable programs.

In 2007, Marian University entered into an agreement with The New Teacher Project (TNTP). TNTP recruits and selects high-ability, energetic teacher candidates, who are predominantly career changers for placement in high-shortage subject areas in high-need schools. TNTP (referred to locally as the Indianapolis Teaching Fellows, or ITF) has 138 teachers in Indianapolis Public Schools and other schools in Marion County. Marian University is the higher education partner in Indiana, providing initial teacher licensure through the Master of Arts in Teaching program. This partnership is a successful one and is gearing for expansion as need in these areas continues to increase.

In 2008, Marian University entered into an agreement with Teach For America. Teach For America (TFA), like TNTP, places high-ability, energetic teacher candidates, predominantly new graduates from the best colleges and universities in the United States, to teach in high-shortage subject areas in high-need schools. TFA has 100 teachers in Indianapolis Public Schools and other schools in Marion County.
