September 29, 2015–The United States Department of Education has awarded Success Academy Charter Schools, the largest and highest-performing charter network in New York City, a $13.4 million grant to replicate and expand its award-winning schools. This highly competitive grant will allow Success Academy to open 13 new public charter schools and expand its High School of the Liberal Arts, providing even more high-quality education options in a city where thousands of children, especially children of color, are trapped in failing schools.
