Mission Possible

Stories and insights on excellent education.

During this year’s New York State Chess Championships, spectators likely saw a sea of Success Academy blue and orange: about one in eight competitors at the event was an SA scholar, with 135 participants representing 14 Success Academy schools.

Beyond sheer numbers, our scholars made their presence known through their great sportsmanship and impressive chess play. Chess is a game of strategic thinking, patience, and creativity — and our scholars demonstrated all of those skills in Saratoga Springs last weekend.
