Success Academy has an innovative schooling model that achieves outstanding results at scale, and our approach to supporting children with the highest educational needs is just as radical. We believe that the best way to support children with special needs is to help them close in on the benchmarks we set for all children — so we help scholars achieve one short-term goal after another for outstanding learning outcomes over time. We call this approach Sprint, and it stems from the core belief that disability does not mean inability.
Members of our community share their scholars’ success stories.
In one year, Chelsea has grown from a Level T to a level W (meeting 5th grade expectations). She is an active and willing participant in class and in her special education services. Her mindset towards school has completely shifted and she displays much more confidence!

"My son and I are fortunate we found a school so invested in students, no matter their ZIP code, race or disability status. I want more parents to watch their children reach their potential."
