This is
Success.

On Monday, April 26, friends and supporters from across the country gathered together to celebrate our scholars and educators. We heard about teaching that comes from the heart, learning that never stops, and fierce determination to challenge the status quo. From Van Jones’s powerful keynote to reflections from college-bound seniors, to teachers sharing the challenges and triumphs of a remote year, we showed what can be done when a community comes together.

At a time when our city and our nation need great public schools more than ever, we hope you will give us your support. Together, we can transform lives for students at Success Academy and far beyond.
