Success Academy brings out the best in the students who attend the charter schools. There is a reason the students are addressed by the school as “scholars”. The students are high-achieving young people that have had a significant amount of esteem built by teachers to know they can create their own expectations.
The students of Success Academy exemplify what it means to rise to their greatest and true potential. The curriculum was founded on the idea that education is not a “one size fits all”.
Success Academy has grades from kindergarten through high school. From the moment students enter into elementary school, they understand that the curriculum is designed for their achievement. Students immediately see that learning opportunities are in abundance and find it exciting. Ultimately, the students find their comfort level for responding to questions, joining together with group activities or class projects. Teachers build a strong foundation within the students to establish core knowledge and create critical thinking skills.
As students’ progress to middle school, they’re already highly acclimated to the charters’ curriculum, and they’re well-prepared for the internationally college-ready standard that puts a greater emphasis on inquiry-based learning as well as individual subject mastery. Success Academy uses the transitional period of middle school to elevate students from concrete thinking to abstract thinking in order to strengthen core skills which are learned in the beginning years.
By the time students reach high school, they’re thriving towards choosing a four-year college. Students are more prepared to pursue internships, international learning and valuable opportunities to develop their individual passion for career choices.
While Success Academy gives students a robust learning experience from kindergarten all the way through high school, the charter school also prepares students for their journey through life.
The teachers of Success Academy provide students opportunities that build their confidence, strengthen their will to achieve; as well as encouraging them to be authentic within their education. The best influence a teacher has over students for 12 years is with instilling hope; success is merely a byproduct of a teacher’s commitment to the students of Success Academy.
