Success Academy Class of 2023: The Future Is Yours!

After thirteen years of working toward their dream of college, members of the Success Academy Class of 2023 have officially announced where they will be attending this fall. They are all set to make their way to prestigious campuses across the country, and we couldn’t be prouder! These scholars — our founding kindergarteners — have been remarkable role models for the underclassmen, tackling the daunting college application process with tenacity and even joy. As we’ve watched them grow into informed and thoughtful citizens, they’ve left us with little doubt: The greatest days still lie ahead.

Collectively, our 26 seniors received offers from over 50 selective colleges. They are engineering enthusiasts, passionate musicians, talented athletes, and thoughtful leaders — and we cannot wait to see what they achieve. Class of 2023, every single one of you has fully earned the incredible opportunities that await you. Congratulations!
