Borough-Wide: A New Approach To Elementary Education

Success Academy Charter Schools have 9 locations throughout our great borough to prepare students to succeed in their school community and beyond!

The first Success Academy was located in Harlem and opened in 2006. It has since expanded its program to 22 schools throughout Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. (Sorry, Staten Island!)

Being a network of charter schools, they have the freedom to be innovative and creative in their approach to education. Their main goal is to teach the idea of Going Beyond Z, inspired by Dr. Seuss’ book “On Beyond Zebra” – for students to be creative, push themselves and never stop questioning.

Their results? Success Academy ranks
– In the top 1% of all New York Schools in Math
– In the top 7% of all New York School in ELA (English Language)

100% of all Success Academy scholars passed the 2013 Science Exam!
