Nationally recognized for our innovative, whole-child school model and outstanding academic results, Success Academy educators are empowering children from all backgrounds with the knowledge, skills, and self-belief to succeed in college and in life.

School quality is our short-hand for the sum total of factors that shape our scholars’ educational experience.

Our vision of scholar preparedness is anchored in core values that we have distilled for educators and learners - Excellence, Environment, Outcomes, Curiosity, Thinking, Purpose and Autonomy. Achieving our vision of scholar preparedness will not only involve a step change in our teaching and learning in the classroom, but a step change in the promotion and offering of learning opportunities that extend beyond the classroom. Examples of such learning opportunities include field studies, summer enrichment experiences, summer school programming, and tutoring amongst others.

Situated within the Schooling Department, the Enrichment Learning Team operationalizes programs that enable excellent out of school learning opportunities and self driven learning for scholars. The team develops and codifies simple and scalable policies, processes, and systems that allow for efficient management of external enrichment learning programs that mirror the same quality and experience of our internal programming.

  • Communicating deliverables and expectations to our school-based staff and to external vendors with clarity and precision
  • Development and maintenance of accountability systems and management systems
