What is SA’s COVID-19 response plan?

At SA, we’re following CDC and NYS Department of Health guidelines to maintain the health and safety of our school communities! This includes requiring our staff to be fully vaccinated, social distancing, optional masking for kids and adults, washing hands, etc. We have a Network team dedicated to tracking, reporting and managing COVID cases, and actively encouraging families to have their students vaccinated.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Your child must be applying to Kindergarten through 4th grade.
  • Your child must be five years old by December 31, 2022 to apply to kindergarten.
  • You must be a resident of New York State to apply to any Success Academy school.

Application Guidelines

  • Admission is FREE and is determined by a random lottery after the application deadline on October 9, 2022. Learn more about applying after the deadline.
  • The application is only for children that are not currently enrolled at any of our Success Academy Charter Schools. Current Success families: only submit an application if you are enrolling a new scholar.
  • Transferring? Families with scholars currently enrolled at Success may submit an application to transfer but will release their current seat if accepted. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you reach out to your school office to request a transfer.
  • For registration or middle school placement, please contact your school's main office (do not submit an application).

Lottery Preference

Preference in the lottery is given to:

  • Siblings of current Success scholars or newly accepted students.
  • Children of Success employees.
  • Applicants who reside within the Community School District (CSD) of a school to which they’ve applied.
  • English Language Learners (ELL) receive a weighted preference in the lottery.
  • The application deadline is October 9, 2022. Applications received after the deadline will be considered waitlist applications. We may process waitlist applications several times throughout the spring and summer depending on available seats.
