Charter High Schools NYC

College ready. Life prepared.
High School

Supporting independence

In high school, students take ownership of their own paths to college — with thoughtful guidance and encouragement — choosing from a robust suite of academic and non-academic electives, clubs, teams, and leadership opportunities. Core classes are collegiate in content and scope, with additional honors tracks and academies for students who want to start cultivating expertise in specific subject areas before they even step on a campus. Every aspect of our high school model is designed to cultivate the skills, mindsets, and knowledge students need to successfully navigate the demands of college, citizenship, and professional life.

High School

A day in the life

Before classes begin, students socialize over breakfast and meet with their advisors to discuss goals for the day ahead.

Getting ahead

Building on the knowledge and mindsets gained in K-8, high schoolers are immersed in an intellectually driven and deeply engaging curriculum prioritizing student-led inquiry, applied problem-solving, and cross-disciplinary perspectives.

Exploring what’s within

Students discover passions, participate in clubs and teams, and become leaders in our unique arts and athletics programs, building the confidence and maturity to thrive throughout their life journeys.

Ready to conquer the world

College application guidance and SAT prep positions students to stand out and graduate as compassionate, driven individuals who know what contributions they want to make in the world.

Head smart, heart strong

Building upon self-advocacy skills learned in K-8, students practice healthy strategies for managing life’s complexities. Specialists further support their development school-wide, in small groups, and through one-on-one instruction.

My favorite part of being a scholar at Success is being able to have many opportunities a lot of students don't get. I take a lot of AP classes and I’m glad I'm able to take that challenge and be able to prosper and get into college.
