Success Academy has changed people’s perception of charter schools for the better. The Eva Moskowitz led chain of schools has become the main challenger for top performers’ positions in New York, something that no other charter school had done before. With 41 schools under its umbrella, the academy boasts having one of the biggest student population in the city, most of these students coming from poor backgrounds. As such, Success Academy is getting all the praise for the change it is bringing to the country’s education sector.
The Online Platform
Although Success Academy operates within the state of New York, Eva has dreams of spreading her reformative agenda to all education districts in the country. In June this year, Eva led the launching of Success Academy Education Institute, an online platform that outlines the schools’ success strategy. The platform will be accessed freely from any part of the country. According to Eva, many brilliant minds are squashed at an early age because of the education systems they are put through. She recognizes that these kids ought to be saved from the quagmire, and the responsibility of doing that rests on her shoulders.
Making a Nationwide Impact
During the online platform launch, Eva Moskowitz said that the platform was one of the avenues through which Success Academy will change the entire American education sector. She said that the platform had been developed in conjunction with the leading educationists from across the globe.
Success Academy Education Institute online platform came in the wake of Success Academy’s win of the 2017 Broad Prize. The prize that saw them take home a cool $250,000 was in recognition of their dedication to offering career-shaping programs that prepared the students for institutions of higher learning.
Besides the online platform, Success Academy plans to cast its nets wider in the coming years. It’s expected that the network will be commissioning a teacher-training facility in the near future. The facility will be situated at the network’s base of Hudson Yards in Manhattan.
