For educators in pursuit of the extraordinary.

Professional Development

Great teachers are great learners. Throughout the year, our workshops and virtual trainings offer educators the opportunity to build skill, community and expertise. Hailing from across the nation, educators join us to explore the core components of subject area instruction and school design at Success Academy, including curriculum, content, and the pre-teaching prep that powers each lesson. Participants then develop a vision for implementing what they learned at their schools. Join our mailing list to be the first to know when new opportunities go live.

School Design

Success Academy’s unique school design powers each day for our students and teachers.There are varied elements to our school design, and many of our workshops and trainings focus on diving deeper into those elements to understand the rationale behind each design decision and how it shapes teaching and learning. School design elements we discuss include the role of play; project-based learning; school culture and community; assessment; scholar skill-building, and more.

Supporting Educators

Teachers move mountains, and they deserve high-level support as they do their transformational work.We at the Robertson Center are educators’ biggest cheerleaders, offering programs and digital communities for educators to improve their practice, commiserate with and learn from one another, complete professional development hours, and balance the demands of work and life.

Thought Leadership

We have learned lots of lessons over the years about how to make the schooling experience better for kids, educators, and families. Our thought leadership shares those lessons with fellow educators and contributes to the broader discourse about education. Our thought leadership appears both in the media and on our own digital channels on topics like socioemotional health, fostering healthy scholar work habits, and family engagement.

Message From The Team

A Letter For You

We have to be honest — the most essential members of our team are all of you. When we set out to build the Robertson Center, we envisioned it as a place where we could bring educators together to talk about the challenges they face, the dreams that drive them, and the ups and downs of daily life in schools. What we’ve found is that, while we do get the privilege of bringing educators together at the Center, it is the educators themselves that have brought the place to life. You all are the ones who turn your ideas, thoughts, and questions into vibrant and moving dialogue, fill our walls with stories of your kids, and push us all to think more expansively about what it means to be an educator in today’s world. It is your questions that drive us, your dedication to your kids and your practice that motivate us, and your energy that feeds our drive to do all that we can to make sure every single one of our kids is getting the education they deserve. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your partnership. We couldn’t do this without you.
