Stories and insights on excellent education.
This spring, Success Academy High School of the Liberal Arts hosted a Meet Your Classmates event, inviting incoming freshmen to explore opportunities at the high school, talk to teachers and current scholars, and get a head-start on making new friends.
Now, with 8th grade graduation in the books and high school on the horizon, we are excited to share some special moments from the event — a reminder of everything that our 9th graders have to look forward to come August! We can’t wait to see what these bright scholars will do once they arrive at SA HSLA. What clubs will they join — or even start? What passions will they discover? There are endless possibilities, and we know that members of the Class of 2027 are going to make a big impression on the high school community. We’re ready for you!
Members of the exceptionally popular Afrobeats club gave an electric performance that captured everyone’s attention. There is a wide range of clubs at HSLA — from Afrobeats, to Theater Tech, to Tri-M Music Honor Society — and the opportunity for particularly passionate scholars to form their own clubs based on their interests.
Success Academy high schoolers are no strangers to grit and determination, and our track and field members manage to balance the demands of rigorous course loads with high-intensity training — resulting in outstanding wins at the national level.

Photography is another especially popular subject at HSLA, with interested scholars progressing through beginner to advanced photography electives. Eighth graders had the chance to test their artistic eye during the photography session, experimenting with color and light.
High school scholars have free periods to for studying, meeting with deans or teachers, and bonding with classmates. In the “get things done room,” scholars can find a comfy place to read, chat, or finish their homework. Rising 9th graders appreciated the chance to pose questions about high school life to current scholars.
Scholars who love music and singing will find plenty of chances to raise their voices at HSLA, with multiple musical electives and clubs to choose from — and classmates and teachers always excited to listen! Current and incoming scholars had fun joining their voices in harmony!
Scholars also enjoyed learning about coding, html, and web design. With a robust STEM program and a range of computer science classes, scholars can learn how to combine their creativity with essential skill sets for the future.
