About Success Academy

We’re redefining what’s possible in education

Every day our students prove that children from all demographics can achieve in school and life when presented with the right opportunities.


Our philosophy

We foster a love of learning while creating opportunities for children to become critical and creative thinkers, build life skills and confidence, pursue passions, and secure exceptional careers. Our dual mission is to build world-class K-12 public schools in NYC while advocating to change policies that prevent children from accessing excellent educational experiences.

Real change starts within

We believe all children should have access to an excellent education. Our mission to deliver educational equity is founded on our belief in the power of children to learn and achieve. When children have access to high-quality teaching—and supportive adults who hold them to high expectations–almost anything is within their grasp. We’re committed to constant reflection and improvement, and we prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion in all that we do.

State Results

2022 NYC State Test Results

At SA schools with testing grades across the network — a total of 45 schools and 11,000 test takers — 82.7% passed Math, with 56% scoring at the highest level of 4, and 76.4% passed ELA, with 33% scoring a 4. In contrast, at New York City district schools, 37.9% of students passed Math and 49% passed ELA. Our Black and Hispanic scholars achieved proficiency rates double and even triple that of their NYC district peers.
