Opening in 2006, Success Academy is a network of charter schools, devoted to preparing New York students for success in higher education and in life. It is a school that is similar to other “no excuses” charter schools. The students are called scholars and they must wear uniforms each day. Though Success Academy is different in the focus of it’s content and how it is taught.

 

Success Academy is a very hands on learning environment. They feel that at the core of learning is doing. With the more hands on approach scholars receive 80 minutes of instruction where the teacher is in front of the room per day. The rest of the day is spent divided into small groups getting more personalized instruction while doing a project that allows the scholars to get hands on with the material. They believe that every child has unlimited potential inside them to succeed, they just need the proper environment to grow and learn.

 

Parents are expected to be very hands on with their child’s learning. They are allowed to come in and observe their child’s class. Teachers stay in direct involvement with parents, providing continuous updates for the scholar’s progress. Parents are expected to make sure that their child’s homework is finished each night, as well as to read a book a night with their child. Parents are also expected to attend school events designed to showcase the success of their scholar. Success Academy knows that the home is a huge influence over how a child is going to do in school, and an environment that values education will help a scholar to achieve even more. The school also encourages parents to get involved with the school, being classroom helpers as well as being on the Parent Council and working with the community outreach programs.
