Success Academy majorly operates in New York City and has its headquarters in Lower Manhattan. The founder of Success Academy who is also the CEO, Eva Moskowitz had a clear vision and objective of creating schools that will be performing exemplary. At the same time, she had a broad picture of improving American education and making it worthwhile. However, Success Academy is only limited to New York at the moment. However, there has been a launch of a new online platform which has the objective of growing the success academy footprints beyond.
The online platform which is now popularly called the “Success Academy Education Institute,” which was unveiled by the CEO, Eva Moskowitz together with other leaders from their headquarters in Lower Manhattan. The portal is completely free, and it offers access to the tutorials and learning strategies used at Success Academy which has 41 schools across New York. This is a move to be part of the change in America’s education as there are children across the nation who have no access to quality and effective education. Therefore, the portal will be a great help to them since Success Academy has a good track record when it comes to offering good and quality education.
Success Academy is also aimed at improving the academic status of low-income students. It is for this reason that the school was awarded the 250,000 Dollars Broad Prize. It is also important to note that 76 percent of the children in Success Academy are from a poor background whereas the majority of the students about 93 percent are of either African-American or Hispanic descent.
The online platform includes different useful resources like “how to videos, book recommendations, and so much more. One of the greatest efforts the curriculum planners at Success Academy provide is choosing carefully the books and the reading materials going to the classroom. This ensures quality education delivery. This network of school has rapidly grown over a decade from one school to over 40 schools. It also receives many applications yearly that may be up to 17,000 applications for the available 3,017 available vacancies. The school was founded in the year 2006. Success Academy is a charter school. Though it’s publicly funded, the charter is privately managed. It is, therefore, the largest charter school in New York.
