The mission of Success Academies is to reimagine public education. From the classroom to the halls of government, this means finding profoundly different approaches to how we structure, implement and support schooling. To realize our radical vision, we reconceive every aspect of school design, from writing rigorous new curricula to drawing regularly on the advances in technology, business and social/civic practices that are transforming every sector except education.Over the past decade, Success Academies has grown faster than any charter network in the nation, building a vibrant network of 45 elementary, middle and high schools. Our 17,000 children - mostly poor and minority - are out-performing students at top city and suburban schools across New York State. With our oldest scholars having just graduated from 12th grade and admitted to some of the countries top universities, we are fast approaching the irrefutable proof point that zip code does not determine destiny.Our goals for our second decade are even more ambitious: to grow to 100 schools and to educate 50,000 children across New York City in a uniquely holistic K-12 system. At 100 schools, Success Academies will be one of the larger school districts in the country - on par with Atlanta or Boston - ensuring that the charter sector is large enough in New York that it cannot be turned back. At 100 schools, we will graduate 3,000 scholars each year who are prepared to enter, persist and graduate from college and eventually to lead in business, government and civic realms.To further position the organization for this rapid growth, Success Academies must reimagine the way work is done across both the enterprise and our network of schools -- valorizing simplification, efficiency and effectiveness.
