Success Academy is working in the sector of public education. It strives to make positive changes and elevate what is possible today and make it readily available for the children of tomorrow.
The Success Academy Charter Schools were created over ten years ago in 2006. The network is based in New York City. It has become the largest network of public charter schools that provide free public education. The Success Academy Charter Schools have their admissions open to all children who are based in the state of New York. The Success Academy Charter Schools also welcome children who are just now starting to learn the English language and those who have special needs.
In order to provide a fair chance for all students regardless of any factors, the Success Academy Charter Schools admit students at random. The admission is made in the month of April every year. There is a lottery with the identification of each applicant. There are 46 schools which admit up to 15 500 students. There are buildings in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens as well. Almost all of the students at the Success Academy Charter Schools are of color. Most of the children are also from families with low incomes. There is also a high percentage of children who are not native English speakers.
The Success Academy Charter Schools are authorized by the institution of the State University of New York’s Charter School Institute. The Success Academy Charter Schools also have a higher amount of freedom of operation than zoned schools. At the same time, The Success Academy Charter Schools are held accountable with strict regulations and report to the state about the performance of their students. The Success Academy Charter Schools are revised every five years to make sure that the school is fit to continue teaching.
